Supporting Emerging Artists

Helping to bridge the gap from emerging to established

The RBC Emerging Artists Project is part of our commitment to help artists in the early stages of their career bridge the gap from emerging to established. RBC’s support focuses on strengthening access to professional networks, mentorship and training, as well as exposing Canada's emerging talent to new and diverse audiences. 


Canada's National Ballet School

Through funding provided by RBC, the Post-Secondary Program of Canada’s National Ballet School supports the skills refinement and professional development of young ballet dancers following high school. This next-generation ballet program bridges dancers into more advanced programs.


Canadian Opera Company

RBC supports the Canadian Opera Company’s Ensemble Studio Program, which provides young opera professionals with advanced instruction, hands-on experience and career development opportunities.
