Our Professional Training Program students dance in three main-stage performances during the school year. The experience of performing on stage is an important part of the journey to becoming professional dancers. They work with professional choreographers, designers, producers, stage managers, and crew; they contribute to the creative and rehearsal process in many ways; and they learn, rehearse, and interpret iconic works by creators who have shaped the landscape of contemporary dance in Canada.
