Welcome to Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault’s web site.
Fernand Nault first had an important American career before returning to settle in Quebec. He had a brilliant career as a choreographer and artistic director at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens in Montreal and, in the United States, especially in Louisville, Kentucky and in Denver, Colorado.
Many of his works have been acquired and produced abroad, in the United States, Asia and Europe. The Work of Fernand Nault is without any doubt an important part of the Quebec and Canadian choreographic heritage.

First Canadian choreographer to ensure his artistic succession during his lifetime, Fernand Nault would have been 100 years old in 2020. A great opportunity to live the unique heritage he left us.
To mark and celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the late Choreographer Emeritus Fernand Nault, André Laprise, trustee of the Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault, organizes and coordinates activities, from 2020-2021 season and beyond.
An artist who has made a significant contribution to the development of Quebec, Canadian and American culture, Fernand Nault has never granted anyone the right to write his biography. No substantial writings representing his career has therefore been published to date. While wanting to respect his will, testimonies of people and personalities who have had the privilege of working alongside Fernand Nault, to benefit from his teachings or to interpret one or more of his works, to share with him moments of life are gathered in the document ”Je me souviens”.
