Fly, the creation laboratory

Since 2011, this project gives six recent graduates of the School an opportunity to participate in a paid creative residence led by a professional choreographer.
The six-week lab, a true springboard to the professional environment, takes place during the summer and concludes with public performances.
The École de danse contemporaine de Montréal invites graduating students and the graduated from the two latest years to register for the audition of the next school-to-work transition project of Fly, the creation laboratory.
