Brainchild of the young adult arm of our cultural jewel
Les Ballets Jazz de Montr é al’s (BJM) (a bastion of talented dancers performing worldwide under the direction of artistic director LOUIS ROBITAILLE), the bohemian-themed NUIT NOMADE at on-fire party venue/event partner Le Salon Richmond in Le Salon 1861 was the culmination of months of hard work on the part of the dynamic Young Leaders committee—expertly chaired by board member STEPHANIE RASSAM—with a view to ensuring a fairy-tale grade rating, and, most importantly, amassing invaluable funds for the Eva Von Gencsy grant supporting new dance talent.
