Fernand Nault

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, in Asia and in 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. To mark this anniversary Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault presents “Faire danser le patrimoine”.
