Classical and Contemporary Works - Ballet Jörgen

Classical & Contemporary Repertoire


Since it’s inception Canada’s Ballet Jörgen has been committed to supporting the cultivation and development of original Canadian choreography that is reflective the many communities we are working in across Canada and anchored in contemporary Canadian society. By commissioning ballets that are exclusively from Canadian and Canadian based choreographers, we provide sustained support for choreographic development in a range of creative settings for emerging, mid-career and well established artists.
