It’s Canada’s 150th birthday! Canada’s Ballet Jörgen is happy to congratulate this great nation on 150 years, especially because it coincides with our own 30th anniversary! CBJ is dedicated to spreading the art and appreciation of ballet throughout from coast, to coast, to coast, and we’ve achieved much over the last 30 seasons. Below is just a small taste of some of the milestones that CBJ has achieved across Canada over the years, as well as some of the ways that Canada has inspired us in our works. Happy Birthday Canada!
