Petits pas de danse

Petits pas de danse

To discover the world of classical dance, whether at school or with family, L’École supérieure offers Petits Pas de danse, a program full of educational and fun activities for children and teenagers.

Demonstration at your school

Along with a portable ballet barre and two young dancers from the professional division, one of our experienced teachers visits a class to explain the B-A-BA of ballet and invites students to participate. This activity of about an hour, is offered in the Greater Montreal area, depending on the availability of dancers. Only transportation fees are to be paid.

Visit the Maison de la danse du Québec Ludmilla-Chiriaeff

Just a few steps from the Laurier metro you will find the studios of L’École supérieure and its costume room, as well as the Vincent-Warren Dance Library. School groups can take part in a guided tour, as well as in one introductory class designed specifically for them. Free activities, but limited spots!
