Our history

In the year 2019, in the heart of the beautiful city of Sherbrooke, in the valley beyond Mont Orford, the ZemmourBallet dance company was born in the firmament of contemporary dance. Founded by the ardent dance enthusiast Nicolas, this artistic troupe, this ballet, saw the light of day on October 19 of that memorable year.


Nicolas had a bold vision, and he wanted to share it with the public. His dream was not only to create his own work, but also to present the creations of other choreographers. From that day on, ZemmourBallet rose like a phoenix of creativity, with the primary mission of spreading the art of dance, both through the original works of its founder and through those of other choreographers.


Since its birth, the ZemmourBallet dance company has anchored itself in the charming city of Sherbrooke, striving to make dance shine through its innovative choreography, and its commitment to the dissemination of dance.


Like a light feather carried by the wind, the ZemmourBallet dance company has made its mark on the history of dance in Quebec, establishing Sherbrooke as a dance destination not to be missed.
