Support a talented young person

Help make sure talent is the only admission criterion for young dancers

No talented, determined child should have to abandon their dreams for lack of money. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, the École supérieure can attract and retain the most talented young dancers from Quebec and elsewhere.

By contributing to this program, you will help a child spread their wings and make great strides toward achieving their dream. The dream of receiving comprehensive, intensive professional training to become a high-calibre dancer. A young artist who has the opportunity to attend our school is a young person who will learn how to face any challenge and perform to the very best of their ability. What they learn with us will benefit them far beyond their student years.
