An internationally renowned repertory company, Ballet Jazz of Montreal (BJM) continues to grow with all the energy and spirit of exploration for which it has been known since its birth in 1972. Part ballet, part modern, part street dance, BJM defies categories with its delicious blend of hip, funky moves infused with infectious energy, humor and imagination.

Ballet Jazz is a diverse international troupe. The dancers have strong classical training, with classical vocabulary and aesthetics. But they mix everything, all disciplines, to the ballet language: modern, jazz, street dance, hip-hop, African dance. Everything is fluid, depending on the personal idea and the vocabulary of each individual choreographer. It brings new style to their work, but with reference — clear reference — to the ballet world.

Since Louis Robitaille was nominated Artistic Director in 1998, BJM is now, more than ever, in tune with the times. While preserving the essence of the company, BJM works today with some of the most prestigious figures in the world of dance and contemporary ballet.

Allowing the full expression of each dancer’s identity is crucial to BJM’s distinctive style. These high level, eclectic artists perfectly represent the company’s spirit. Thanks to their unique personalities and the quality of their performances, they captivate audiences and critics across the world.

“Impeccable dancers.” -- Philadelphia Inquirer

“The movement is smooth and sleek, with slinky hip rolls and low wheeling jumps and crouches, all punctuated by loose-legged little kicks and bouncy walks. The effect is clean and smart, and the 12 dancers perform with boundless enthusiasm. Ballet Jazz of Montreal offers an entire world, full of surprise and humor, emotion and pain, expressed through a dance vocabulary that takes ballet technique and dismantles it to near-invisibility.” -- New York Times

Swanhilda notices her fianceé Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppélia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson…

The Bolshoi’s unique version of Coppélia exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography of this ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fianceé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. The company’s stunning corps de ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abound in youthful energy and irresistible humor in this effervescent production.
