’79 biennial ballet gala

Theodoor Gilissen is proud to be a sponsor of the Stichting Dansersfonds '79 Ballet Gala, helping to promote dance as an art form and fostering the development of talent, finesse and style.

We have been a major sponsor of the biennial ballet gala, organized by Stichting Dansersfonds '79, since 2007. Established in 1979 by Dutch husband and wife dancers Han Ebbelaar and Alexandra Radius, the foundation supports and promotes ballet, and dance in general, including by supporting and encouraging promising young dancers.

The foundation’s work is chiefly funded by the biennial ballet gala, which enjoys the support of world-famous dancers and choreographers. The 17th edition of the ballet gala will be held at the DeLaMar Theater in January 2014. This time, the emphasis will be on different aspects of the Dutch dance scene.

Theodoor Gilissen's sponsorship of this event reflects our high regard for education and the pursuit of quality and refinement exemplified by ballet.
