Hope Muir, Joan and Jerry Lozinski Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada announced the addition of 13 new Corps de Ballet members and seven new RBC Apprentices to the company.
“I am thrilled to welcome 13 new dancers to the Corps de Ballet and seven new Apprentices to The National Ballet of Canada in my inaugural season,” said Muir in a statement. “With many key retirements and attrition following the pandemic it was important to me to bring the company back to its full complement of artists as we embark on an exciting new season. These talented young dancers come from across Canada, the US, UK, France, Italy, Australia, Taiwan, South Korea and Argentina. Their collective experience will bring both energy and excitement to the National Ballet and I am so looking forward to working with them in the studio.”
