EP 6 – How a Simple Idea to Make Ballet Accessible to Everyone Has Changed the Landscape of Ballet All Across Canada and the Usa

It is my absolute delight to introduce you Mr. Bengt Jörgen, C.M. as my next guest of the Financial Doctor Show.

Bengt is the Artistic Director & CEO of Canada’s Ballet Jörgen.

In January 2019, Bengt Jörgen was appointed a Member (C.M.) of the Order of Canada for his commitment to promoting ballet in Canada as a choreographer and artistic director.

In 1992, his artistic vision led to the formation of a partnership with George Brown College in Toronto where he is the Artistic Director of the full-time dance program.

He is an acclaimed choreographer who has created more than 30 full-length ballets for numerous ballet and opera companies including the National Ballet of Canada, The Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the American Ballet Studio Company, and the Hong Kong Ballet. His re-creation of major classical works such as The Nutcracker: A Canadian Tradition, Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty are celebrated for re-energizing and bringing dramatic clarity to traditional ballet.

Bengt Jörgen strongly believes in classical ballet as a powerful language and foundation to engage contemporary audiences with dance. He is committed to ensuring ballet is relevant to and has a place in the life of Canadians living in communities from coast to coast.

At the end of the interview, please enjoy: ‘The Home Show’.

With Love and Gratitude,

Eni Oszlai
