Press Release [PDF 964 Ko]

Montreal, Tuesday, July 30, 2013 – It is with considerable regret that Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal learned of the passing of dancer Nathalie Buisson, who was a member of the company for eight years.

Diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2004, Nathalie wanted to use her talent to mobilize the public and encourage research. She launched the “Coeur en tête” benefit show in 2006, in which Les Grands Ballets and many other stars of the dance world took part. More than $50,000 was raised and given to the Centre hospitalier universitaire de Sherbrooke (CHUS) to ensure the continuity of a brain cancer research project led by Dr. David Fortin, neurosurgeon and neuro-oncologist.

Sadly, the disease took Nathalie’s life on July 26. We mourn the loss of a dancer who was a part of Les Grands Ballets family, and it is with deep emotion that we offer our sincerest condolences to her loved ones.
