The ballet gala Art for Life is a continuation of a long-standing tradition, which was initiated by the National Cancer Institute in Bratislava. The main idea of the event is to raise awareness and support the battle with cancer. Based on the philosophy that art can heal, the principal ballet stage brings a unique, stylistically rich programme featuring the leading soloists of the Slovak National Theatre Ballet and performers from renowned European companies.
