The National Ballet of Canada has announced the list of dancers promoted for the 2021-22 season.

Principal Dancers

  • Koto Ishihara
  • Siphesihle November
  • Tina Pereira
  • Ben Rudisin

First Soloist

  • Jeannine Haller
  • Calley Skalnik

Second Soloist

  • Brenna Flaherty
  • Noah Parets
  • Genevieve Penn Nabity

What they’re saying:

“This has been a year unlike any other with immense challenges for our company but I take great pride in the spirit with which our dancers have persevered and what we have accomplished despite all of the obstacles,” said Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada. “It is my great pleasure to recognize the contribution of these exceptional artists with promotions for the 2021/22 season.”

Two more mentionables:

  1. The National ballet has awarded Selene Guerrero-Trujillo and Alexander Skinner with the Patron Awards of Merit. The awards include a cash prize of $1,500. Because some eligible dancers were not able to perform as much, the award criteria was amended to honor two dancers who went above and beyond.
  2. A special parting nod to dancer Nan Wang who will be retiring from the Corps de ballet after 17 years.
