REPERTOIRE TECHNICAL RIDER CONTACT

Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet first began to tour Canada in 1945; then completed its first American tour in 1954. Today, the Company spends between 10-15 weeks a year on the road, performing in centres both large and small.

The average touring Company is approximately 40 people, including 26 dancers, 7 to 8 technical crew, and 4 to 6 staff and management. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet has developed touring infrastructure, of its over 50 year history of touring, which allows most of our productions to be setup and performed on the same day.
