An internationally renowned contemporary dance company, BJM – Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, is a repertory company which presents a hybrid form of dance that combines the aesthetics of classical ballet and embraces many other different styles of dance.
Over the years, the company has pursued its own unique path. Very contemporary in its current approach, BJM performances are sexy, explosive, original and accessible, and its superb dancers are widely acclaimed.
The term “jazz” in the name refers more to a “jazzing up” of classical ballet rather than a musical or dance style.
The company celebrates 40 years of international touring performances, including three pieces written for the festive event.
The program includes: Closer – Benjamin Millepied, Night Box – Wen Wei Wang and Harry – Barak Marshall.
