50 years of dance excellence, innovation and passion

Power Corporation is proud to support Ballets Jazz Montréal, a contemporary dance company which, for over 50 years, has created, produced, performed and toured powerful and expressive dance pieces on local, national and international stages. It often presents multidisciplinary works, at times combining theatre, video and music, to engage a public that is increasingly interested in seeing new forms of choreography.

Having given more than 2,600 performances in 68 countries to over 2.8 million people since its inception in 1972, Ballets Jazz Montréal is considered one of the leading ambassadors of Quebec dance and artistic vitality to the world. The company’s determination to stage uniquely innovative and moving works has enabled it to demystify jazz ballet and make it more accessible to everyone, especially through the development of education and outreach programmes.  

On the strength of its many years of experience, Ballets Jazz Montréal looks ahead to a future in which its internationally renowned choreographers and outstanding dancers will continue to innovate and extend the influence of Montréal dance throughout the world.
