Shocker: Kudelka To Leave Canada’s National Ballet

The National Ballet of Canada was shocked Wednesday when artistic director James Kudelka announced he would step down. “I am proud that the National Ballet is now a different company than the one I inherited and has developed its own role in the dance world, rather than emulating others. When I watch the company perform, I know that they are giving a performance that you could not see anywhere else.”
