Around the World and Back Again

Almost 20 years ago, a story in The Ottawa Citizen pooh-poohed “lingering dreams among some supporters of making the Alberta Ballet Company Canada's fourth major classical dance troupe.” But, as the old saying goes, that was then and this is now. Leaving behind headlines peppered with words like ‘clumsy’, ‘awkward’, ‘lacking’ and ‘struggling’, those lingering dreams materialized. Alberta Ballet has indeed matured into Canada’s fourth largest. With 24 dancers and its own world class school, it’s a polished international success story capable of challenging the Royal Winnipeg for western Canada’s best.
