The Pia Bouman School for Ballet and Creative Movement (PBS) needs your help! 

After 40 years serving the community of Parkdale, the future is uncertain as our current home at 6 Noble Street has been sold for re-development and PBS needs to relocate.

PBS is a registered not-for-profit organization with a mandate that every child who wishes to dance, to create, and to perform shall have the opportunity to do so, regardless of financial means.  The bursary fund is the foundation of this mandate, offering free tuition to dancers in need.

PBS is rooted in Parkdale and the west end, but the unique program draws young dancers and teachers from across Toronto.

Over the past 40 years thousands of dancers have passed through the doors, learning to express themselves, perform in the annual Nutcracker, and forge long lasting friendships in their home away from home. 

PBS also offers affordable rehearsal and performance space to hundreds of independent artists who use the studios and theatre at 6 Noble Street, creating a cultural hub within a rapidly changing real estate market....a market that makes survival of artistic institutions a challenge.

The PBS community seeks your support to help cover renovation of a new space to meet the dance schools needs and moving costs once our new space is realized.  

If you have ever danced, performed or created at our school; if you have ever watched our annual performances of Nutcracker; if you believe that independent arts, culture, diversity and creativity have a place in City neighbourhoods....

....PBS needs your support.  Your donation will help keep Pia Bouman's legacy in Parkdale for years to come.

For more information on the history of the re-development at 6 Noble Street listen to Pia speak to Matt Galloway on CBC's Metro Morning:


PBS can provide a tax receipt for all donations over $20. To receive a Canadian tax receipt for your donation please email info@piaboumanschool.org.
