The Nationwide Ballet of Canada’s Spencer Hack Promoted to Principal Dancer

The Nationwide Ballet of Canada has introduced that Spencer Hack has been promoted to Principal Dancer.  

Hack was shocked on stage by Creative Director Hope Muir following the Canadian premiere of David Dawson’s Anima Animus, by selling him from First Soloist to Principal Dancer.  

“Spencer is considered one of The Nationwide Ballet of Canada’s most dedicated, versatile and poetic artists. He brings a robust physicality and emotional authenticity to each position he takes on and he’s a humble chief within the studio,” mentioned Muir. 

“Spencer represents lots of the values I see as necessary to this firm and to the way forward for our artform. It’s my nice pleasure to advertise this proficient artist to Principal Dancer.” 

Hack was born in Toledo, Ohio and educated at Canada’s Nationwide Ballet College. He joined The Nationwide Ballet of Canada as a RBC Apprentice in 2014 and was promoted to First Soloist in 2020. In 2020, Hack carried out a soloist position on the planet premiere of the Dora Mavor Moore Award-nominated Angels’ Atlas by Crystal Pite and created the position of Eurydice on the planet premiere of Orpheus Alive by Robert Binet.

A flexible dancer who approaches the classical and up to date repertoire with equal accomplishment, Hack has excelled in such roles as Jimmy on the planet premiere of MADDADDAM by Wayne McGregor, Rothbart in Karen Kain’s Swan Lake, Backside in The Dream, Allan Grey in A Streetcar Named Need and Uncle Nikolai in The Nutcracker. In 2017, Hack was awarded the Patron Award of Benefit.
