Ballet Montreal Junior Company

This is a unique and artistic experience bringing young dancers into direct contact with the creative process and all its different aspects, both human and technical. Participating in the junior company will provide an exceptional apprenticeship in classical ballet.

The junior Company performs in different venues throughout the year, such as: Starlight foundation fundraising event for sick children and the CIBC Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation gala.

Junior company dancers also have the opportunity to work with a range of guest choreographers
throughout the year.

Candidates must request an audition to join the company or be invited by the Artistic Director.

Fay Bertrand

I am a dancer.

I don’t dance because I want to. I dance because I need to.

I tell a story by the movements of my body.

I dance because I get this amazing rhythm of the music.

I dance because it makes me happy.

I am artist and athlete and a dreamer.

I am a dancer.

To dance is to be yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. When I dance, I can enjoy being myself. For me, dancing is more than just moving body parts; it is a pathway of expressing my deepest inner thoughts.

Ely Robertson

Dance is the reflection of your feelings and the way you want to show an audience the sense of life. It acts like the mirror of your soul, or the echo of your biggest emotions. This art makes me feel all sorts of thrills, but mostly liberation. And this said liberty is the key to accomplish your biggest dreams, without any restrictions.

Erin Sinclair

​ "I don't just dance. I perform. I breathe. I watch the world disappear. I release my feelings. I lead with my heart. I tear down my walls. I stop feeling sad. I lose the pain. I let go. I smile. No, I don't just dance. I do so much more." - Anonymous

Anastasia Sushko
