L’École supérieure remains, more than half 
a century after its founding by Mrs. Ludmilla Chiriaeff, the only francophone institution 
in North America that offers a world-class training in ballet. The professional program 
in performance aims for the holistic development of students, incorporating morphological, psychological, artistic, technical and scholastic components. The artistic direction strives to combine the best elements of proven methods, while remaining on the lookout for the latest developments in the art of movement.

The professional program in performance is subdivided into cycles that fairly reflect the evolution of the training program, that is to say, 
the requirements in terms of time and commitment, from junior to superior level.
