Ballet Jörgen Canada

Ballet Jörgen Canada, an on-tour company with no permanent home, is the fifth largest ballet company in Canada.
It was founded in 1987 by Bengt Jörgen and Susan Bodie to create an opportunity for Canadian choreographers and original new works in classical ballet. A small company with only fourteen dancers and no orchestra, its most popular ballet productions include The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet and The Emperor's New Clothes.
Ballet Jörgen has grown to become Ontario's second largest dance company and, progressively, a national centre of choreographic development committed to choreographic originality and artistic excellence, expressing the artistic vision of its founder.
The company has performed classic stories across the country for over 20 years, bringing the beauty and enchantment of classical ballet to communities large and small. As the only major Canadian ballet company with a repertoire consisting exclusively of original works, it has produced over 100 ballets by some 40 different choreographers, influenced by the core belief in reaching out to bring ballet to as many people as possible.
