Ballet Victoria’s Legacy

Rosemarie Liscum Legacy Fund for Ballet Victoria

Ballet Victoria established the Rosemarie Liscum Legacy Fund in June 2021 to honour the President of the BV Board of Directors from 2008 to 2021, Rosemarie Liscum, who passed away in Victoria, BC in April 2021. 

Each season, BV awards funds to one or more deserving emerging artist(s) to support their development in dance. The BV Artistic Director selects the recipient(s) each season based on merit, looking for dancers who demonstrate qualities Rosemarie was known for: passion, empathy, hard work, dedication, humour, generosity, humility, and kindness.

Contribution to this Legacy Fund can be made on an ongoing basis and a tax receipt will be issued by Ballet Victoria for the full amount of the donation. The fund is hosted by the Victoria Foundation and will be held in perpetuity.
