Inspired dance training in Canada

For 50 years, the School has been training dancers who have been inspired by the depth of passion and the physical power of the human body in motion. Dance is an art form of kinetic expression, which both represents and reflects back to us our understanding of the world through the elements of time, space, energy, musicality, and dynamics. It can provoke joy and wonder, sadness and despair, humour and delight, and deep feelings of passion and spiritual awareness. As an art form it keeps us profoundly in touch with others, with our environment, and with ourselves.

Philosophically, training emphasizes the whole dancer – body, mind, and spirit – since excellent movement training engages the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our humanity. The School affirms its commitment to the education of all aspects of an individual through its strong and varied curriculum and through the provision of excellent role models in its faculty and guest artists.

The School strives for artistic excellence in teaching, stays vitally aware of ongoing developments in the art form, provides stable administration and financial management, and maintains a strong and responsible Board of Directors.

Through its dedication to excellence in the art form, the School is at the forefront of training in contemporary dance in Canada.
