ACADEMY OF BALLET AND JAZZ SCHOOL OF CANADIAN BALLET THEATRE
CELEBRATING OUR 30th ANNIVERSARY MESSAGE FROM THE ARISTIC DIRECTOR AND PRODUCER
We are pleased to extend our warmest greetings to everyone attending Academy of Ballet and Jazz- School of Canadian Ballet Theatre’s annual showcase. Over the past 30 years we have had the honour of working with such a creative and talented faculty. It brings us joy to see some of our graduates be part of this fantastic team. We would like to take the time and thank each and every one of our teachers and students for their dedication and hard work.
Students of the Academy have been part of many complete ballets showcased each year including: The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, La Bayadere, Don Quixote, Coppélia and Giselle. Some of our previous showcases featured guest artists from some of the finest ballet companies in the world such as the Bolshoi Ballet, Kirov Ballet/ Mariinsky Theatre, American Ballet Theatre, Royal Ballet, and Cuban National Ballet.
We are very proud of our graduates! Some have joined major ballet companies around the world includ- ing: Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, Bolshoi Ballet, Budapest Opera Ballet, English National Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Le Ballet Du Capitole, Toulouse, Les Ballet de Monte Carlo, West Australian Ballet, Eifman Ballet in St. Petersburg, Russia, Opera Atelier, and many more.
We are happy to keep in contact with our graduates, and follow their professional careers. They know that they are always welcome to the Academy when visiting home, and it’s always wonderful to see them. Keep up the fantastic hard work, and reach for the stars!
Our school offers professional level of training that gives many of our students the opportunity to com- pete and win top awards at the most prestigious international ballet competitions. The Prix de Lausanne is an international dance competition held annually in Lausanne, Switzerland. The competition is for young dancers seeking to pursue a professional career in classical ballet, and many former prize winners of the competition are now leading stars with major ballet companies around the world. This year our student Irene Yang was selected to compete at Prix de Lausanne. Around 75 candidates from 30 or so countries compete each year, in the hope of being chosen for the final, reserved for the best 20 among them. We are extremely proud as Irene was selected as one of the top 5 finalists in her age category! The only Canadian female finalist!
Additionally, our students competed against hundreds of participants in the regionals of the world’s largest international student dance competition, Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP), with grand success!
We would like to congratulate all our students who have been internationally recognized. We are all extremely proud of everyone and their hard work!

Over the years, Nadia and Solomon provided their students with so many incredible opportunities. Whether it was dancing with some of the best dancers around the world in such productions as The Nutcracker and Giselle, or helping them train for world prestigious competitions, everything was executed to perfection with the results to prove it.
I first came to Academy of Ballet and Jazz recreationally, but then because of Nadia’s gift of teaching, I fell in love with the art of ballet. I am so proud to be apart of this school and have nothing but the utmost admiration for everything they’ve accomplished through all their hard work and dedication.
I can never thank Nadia enough for her patience, guidance and most of all
love in helping make my dance dreams come true.”
