This tutu represents a box of nostalgic treasures; fond memories of the past, mingled with current joys celebrating the rich and intricate fabric of The National Ballet of Canada. Like the fine net of the tutu, a myriad of people with various skills have brought strength and beauty to the stage for the past 60 years. 
The photos and tiny books include the images or names of dancers, directors, donors, staff, artists, physicians, choreographers, musicians and friends. Tokens and charms represent various performances, while the thimble, nails and shoes honour the work behind the scenes. The tickets acknowledge the importance of the audience, the gloves for applause and community support. Additionally, the tutu includes a selection of memories submitted by National Ballet Alumni displayed on the bodice.
Nancy Zimmerman has over 30 years of professional experience as a mural and fine art illustrator and painter. She studied Fine Art at Brock University and shares her talent with the local community as an art teacher.
For more information, visit the National Ballet’s Virtual Museum, and the Design Exchange exhibits, 60 Years of Designing the Ballet and The Tutu Project on display from July 11 to Sept 2.
