Ballet 101 - Delving Deeper presented by Canada`s Ballet Jorgen

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen presents Ballet 101 DELVING DEEPER  

This engaging video program will ignite a deeper understanding of elements from the live presentation. Please share these fun and enriching 8 minutes widely with your student community. 

Continuing with our commitment to bring ballet education to all communities, even during a pandemic, we have created a new way for you to stay engaged with our Ballet 101 program.  DELVING DEEPER allows us, as dancers, to share our knowledge and experience of all things ballet, behind the scenes and on the stage, with you and your students.  

We plan to create more DELVING DEEPER episodes over the next several months to share with you in the next year. 

This program is generously sponsored by the Ontario Trillium Foundation  and allows us to provide it for free to you. 

Our travelling in-person Ballet 101 program is designed especially for children and youth and introduces the audience to ballet through a combination of performance and participation. The program provides opportunities to see a high-quality professional dance presentation while learning about ballet as a storytelling medium. The interactive component teaches basic ballet positions and allows participants to discover their own ability to convey emotions through movement.

Ballet 101 serves as an introduction to the performing arts while also educating the public about the evolution of ballet dance.

This program is graciously sponsored by The Ontario Trillium Foundation and allows us to provide this program free of charge.
