(313) to the (514): Music Hall's presents 4th Annual Choreography Expo 4/29
Music Hall celebrates the ingenuity of choreography with its 4th annual Choreography Expo, (313) to the (514) featuring the study of creative back and forth between Detroit and Montreal on Saturday, April 29th at 8PM.
An internationally renowned repertory company, BJM has continued to grow with all the energy and spirit of exploration for which it has been known since its birth in 1972. Thanks to the enduring faith of Geneviève Salbaing and co-founders Eva Von Gencsy and Eddy Toussaint, this vitality has made its mark through the years. 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.
Founded in 1972, BJM - Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal is an internationally renowned contemporary dance company which presents a hybrid form of dance that combines the aesthetics of classical ballet and embraces many other different styles of dance. Very contemporary in its current approach, BJM performances are sexy, explosive, original and accessible, and its superb dancers are widely acclaimed. The term "jazz" in the name refers more to a "jazzing up" of classical ballet rather than a musical or dance style.
Since 1998, BJM has been under the masterly command of Artistic Director Louis Robitaille. His unerring flair for attracting talented choreographers and presenting high calibre dance pieces keeps raising the bar for his team of performers and stage professionals.
