COVID-19: EDCM plan for 2020-2021
Welcome or welcome back to the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal!
The EDCM team has worked hard to reopen the school for the 2020 fall term and provide stimulating, high-level dance training while taking into account the safety and well-being of its community.
During these unsettled times, we have taken the opportunity to redesign the spaces, program structure and activities. While aiming to maintain a good working atmosphere, several strict health measures have been put in place to ensure safe spaces for all. Consistent with Quebec’s public health guidelines, this plan includes:
- a restructured schedule
- distancing within the studios
- online courses
- increased maintenance of spaces
- sanitary stations
Although these are restrictions, together, they will allow us to hope for a positive outlook for the future. This daily effort is a commitment to solidarity among students, teachers, choreographers, musicians and the administrative team.
In these exceptional circumstances, the EDCM is committed to making every effort to ensure that this 2020 fall term will be the best possible experience.
Have a great term!
January 7th, 2021 - On the advice of the Government of Quebec on January 6th, 2021, professional training at l’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal will be provided online until January 25th. After January 25th, some classes will take place at the School. Recreational classes (except Intensive Workshops) will be postponed to January 30th. We’ll continue to strictly respect health measures. Thank you for your understanding.
