A Canadian First - Goh Ballet Forms Partnership with China's Prestigious Ballet Companies to Benefit of Dancers in Canada and China

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2013) - In a Canadian ballet first, the Vancouver-based Goh Ballet Academy, lead by Director Chan Hon Goh, has created a unique opportunity to foster dance between Canada and China. Goh, has formalized her long-standing relationships with the National Ballet of China, the Guangzhou Ballet Company and the Guangzhou Art School of China. Goh signed memorandums of understanding, supported by the Canadian and Chinese governments, that will enable the companies, their dancers, instructors and choreographers to collaborate on productions, broaden their scope of dance, participate in cultural exchanges and co-present ballets in both countries.

"I am so humbled and honoured that these revered companies - including the National Ballet of China, China's first and largest ballet company - have chosen the Goh Ballet for their first formal Canadian partnerships," said Goh. "This expression of mutual support is incredibly significant for the companies and related dance professionals, but also signifies a collaborative arts relationship between Canada and China which has both cultural and economic benefit."

Goh, a former Prima Ballerina with the National Ballet of Canada, is touring China as part of the Vancouver-China Business & Cultural Mission, led by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC).
