Ballet Jörgen was founded to support the development and dissemination of original choreography. We only dance ballets created on the Company ensuring an entirely original repertoire of ballets. To date, Ballet Jörgen has performed 263 original creations by 94 choreographers, including nine full-length ballets and five works created especially for children. Providing opportunities for choreographers from a range of backgrounds and identities ensures all voices are heard and develops artists that are truly representative of all Canadians, and we are proud to have performed works from 49 female choreographers.
We only dance ballets created on the Company ensuring an entirely original repertoire of ballets. We tell Canadian stories and celebrate our heritage by transplanting major classical ballets such as The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty into Canadian settings.
