Ballet Jörgen is recognized for the innovation, warmth, humour and beauty in its works. For 25 years, the organization has sought to advance the art and appreciation of ballet and Canadian choreography through performance, educational experiences and outreach. Bengt Jörgen and Susan Bodie founded Ballet Jörgen Canada in 1987 out of a desire to give choreographers the opportunity to develop original works. The organization takes responsibility for these new works and ensures each piece has an audience. Ballet Jörgen Canada has grown into the 5th largest dance organization in the country and is the only major Canadian ballet company with a repertoire of exclusively new works. Extensive education and outreach programs have made the organization Canada’s #1 dance company in terms of community service.
Audiences and students don’t just watch Ballet Jörgen Canada’s shows; they become involved with the company on a personal level.
Ballet Jörgen Canada offers full performance seasons in Toronto, Halifax, and Ottawa, and tours from coast to coast.
