Ballet Creole
The flying colours of the African Diaspora!

Ballet Creole was founded in 1990 by Trinidadian-born dancer, choreographer, drummer and educator, Patrick Parson (who has a Master’s degree in Dance Ethnology). The company, which celebrated its 25th Anniversary in the 2014-2015 season, endeavors to create a dance legacy in Canada through performance and educational projects. Ballet Creole’s versatile dancers and musicians perform traditional and contemporary dance and music from around the world, with a particular emphasis on the African Diaspora.
