Widely recognized for its innovation, warmth, humor, and beauty, Canada’s Ballet Jörgen was formed in 1987 by Bengt Jörgen and Susan Bodie, is the only major Canadian ballet company with a repertoire comprised exclusively of original works. For almost 30 years, the organization has worked to make ballet relevant and comfortable, part of growing up; as much a part of the fabric of regular (Canadian) life as hockey or curling.
Many of Ballet Jörgen’s ballets have earned national and international recognition, propelling Ballet Jörgen Canada to the forefront of the North American dance scene. The Ballet gives over 120 performances a year, taking ballet to a wide range of rural based, urban and inner-city communities, building future audiences for the performing arts.
