Evelyn Hart is all smiles after being presented the key to the city by Mayor Brian Bowman to recognize her achievements as an award-winning ballerina, an internationally renowned dancer, and one of Canada’s most treasured artists at RWB Thursday.

Acclaimed ballerina Evelyn Hart joined a small but successful cohort of people to receive a key to the City of Winnipeg on Thursday.

Mayor Brian Bowman awarded Hart a key in recognition of her more than 30-year career with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

Hart started her ballet career in Winnipeg, joining the RWB in 1976 and becoming a soloist just two years later and a principal dancer just one year after that. Over the course of her lengthy career, she has performed in more than 118 countries and on every single continent.

The Winnipeg key is far from Hart’s first honour. She was made an officer of the Order of Canada and shortly promoted to companion. She was also Manitoba’s Woman of the Year in 1987 and holds two honourary doctorates, one from the University of Manitoba and the other from McMaster University in southern Ontario.
