9 out of 10 Canadians believe that exposure to arts and culture is important to their well-being. The arts encourage confidence, creativity and self-expression in young people.

Here at the School, we are training creative people to perform, choreograph, and teach, and to assume leadership roles that will change the face of contemporary dance in Canada and around the world.
