National Ballet Artistic Director Karen Kain is being honoured by Canada Post with a commemorative stamp to celebrate her 50 year career. It features a photo of Kain in Swan Lake.

In a video statement, the ballet icon says “I am deeply touched that Canada Post has chosen to honour Canadian ballet with stamps featuring myself, and renowned dancer and choreographer Fernand Nault .”

The stamps were released today to mark International Dance Day.

Recognized as one of the most gifted classical dancers of her era, Karen Kain joined The National Ballet of Canada in 1969.

Fernand Nault spent two decades with American Ballet Theatre before joining what is now Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal as resident choreographer and co-artistic director in 1965.
