Canada’s Ballet Jörgen

Ballet Company

“We believe that ballet has the power to touch audiences in profound ways.” -Bengt Jörgen, Artistic Director & CEO

Over the last 28 years, Canada’s Ballet Jӧrgen has produced a total of 216 original creations by 80 choreographers, including eight full-length ballets and five works created especially for children and family programming.  The company gives over 120 performances a year, bringing ballet performances to over 50,000 people across Canada.  One-third of Ballet Jörgen Canada’s audiences at public performances are under the age of eighteen and one-third are attending a dance performance for the first time.

We are thrilled to announce that the Company has exclusive rights to create Anne of Green Gables: The Ballet™, with a score based on the original compositions from Anne of Green Gables: The Musical.  It will be the first time the story has been authorized for creation as a full-length ballet.

The 2019-2020 season will mark CBJ’s first major US tour since 2005.
