Teacher Training Program (AEC)

With a more than half a century’s tradition, L’École supérieure is an establishment committed to transmitting the necessary know-how to teach classical dance, both for recreational and / or professional students.

In line with the reality of the working world, this 720-hour program, including practical internships, is also offered on a part-time basis.

Leading to a career in the field of recreational or professional training, this program is sanctioned by a diploma of advanced studies in ballet teaching and an attestation of college studies.

Recognition of prior learning, leading to accreditation of certain courses, can be practised, depending on the experience and background of existing trainers.

Classes are in French only.
