After many years working as an itinerant choreographer, Grand-Maître set himself the goal of directing a ballet company and in 2002 was hired by ALBERTA BALLET, where he has restaged a number of his earlier works and created popular versions of Bizet's Carmen and Prokofiev's Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet. Grand-Maître has had considerable box office and critical success by creating ballets to popular music. In 2007 he collaborated with Canadian musician Joni MITCHELL on the ballet Joni Mitchell's The Fiddle and the Drum, a work about war and the environment. In 2010 he created a Broadway-style ballet about sensationalist aspects of the life of singer/songwriter Elton John, called Love Lies Bleeding, to be followed by a ballet using the music of Canadian songstress Sarah MCLACHLAN in a new work.

Jean Grand-Maître has expanded Alberta Ballet to 30 dancers, making it Canada's 3rd-largest ballet company, and has led it on several tours of China as well as extensive domestic touring. He has given Alberta Ballet a distinct artistic personality and advanced his predecessors' efforts to establish its national and international profile. He was also the director of choreography for the opening and closing ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

Grand-Maître, notably articulate and polylingual, has also become an outspoken advocate for the role of the arts within Alberta and nationally.

This special Calgary South Club internal awards program was established in 2006 to recognize the outstanding contribution of club members who take on significant responsibilities and commitments in furthering the work of our club.

The award is named the “Cleven Award” in honour of and recognition of the first president of the Rotary Club of Calgary South chartered as the Manchester Rotary Club in 1955. Harry Cleven was a very active Calgary community leader and a well-known and respected business man. He was one of 62 people who were killed in the crash of a TransCanada Airlines flight which crashed on Mt. Slesse near Chilliwack on December 9th 1956. He made many positive contributions to the startup and a strong foundation for our Rotary Club.

We already have twenty-three members in this special program and expect to induct another two or three this year. New members are nominated by club members with a review by a committee, followed by our club Board of Directors support
