PROMOTED TO PRINCIPAL DANCER
May 16, 2005….Toronto, Ontario….JAMES KUDELKA, Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada, promoted First Soloists HEATHER OGDEN and NEHEMIAH KISH to Principal Dancer. Mr. Kudelka made the announcement yesterday at a celebration that marked the end of the company’s season.
"Both Heather and Nehemiah have shown strength and commitment as dancers. They have shone this season dancing challenging roles in Giselle, the company premiere of Stravinsky Violin Concerto, Les Sylphides, La Ronde, Musings and, most recently, in An Italian Straw Hat " said James Kudelka.
How exciting for them both.
I am pleased to see Heather promoted as she is a thrill to watch and has worked very hard this year.
