Élèves de la division récréative avec leur professeure

Enroll your child today in one of our ballet classes and give them the joy of dancing.

For children as young as 3, we offer once-weekly courses for discovering and learning dance. For children 7 and over, we offer several options at various paces. The recreational division can therefore meet the needs of a variety of different student profiles. Whether your child is already dreaming of a career in dance or simply wants to explore a new activity, we have the right option for them.

Happiness and self-improvement are on the menu!

3 possible paths

For those who are curious about dance

Children’s recreational program - ages 3 to 17 - 1 class a week (click here)

A child registered in the recreational program experiences the joy of exploring movement and dancing to music. The student is eager to attend ballet class each week and learn more about dance.

→ For those who love to dance

Children’s recreational program - ages 10 to 17 - 2 classes a week (click here)

Starting at age 10, children have the option of attending two classes a week. This more demanding pace sparks new motivation and enables faster learning.

→ For avid dance enthusiasts

Children’s preparatory program - ages 7 to 9 – A dance program with 3 to 7 hours of instruction weekly, designed to prepare children for admission to the professional division (click here)

Students who register for the preparatory program are naturally dynamic, inquisitive and dedicated – children who love to move and learn. Their fascination for dance, consistency and interest in the various courses are second nature to them. With between 3 and 7 hours of instruction each week, children make a full commitment to ballet and discover the exciting world of pre-professional dance training.
