Quebec City Ballet is a nonprofit charity established September 17, 2001, before taking a purely ballet orientation in 2005. Christiane Bélanger is it's founder, Artistic Director and CEO.
The artistic approach pursued by Christiane Bélanger and Quebec City Ballet responds to the desire of the choreographer to make ballet accessible to the widest possible audience without any concession on the professional vocabulary and choreographic performance. The use of large public themes also contributes to break down preconceived ideas about the discipline.
The research and work of Christiane Bélanger and the Quebec City Ballet rely on integrating with classical ballet other art forms that are easier to approach - or at least more familiar - such as the theater, multimedia and vocal music.
