Imagination and movement

Based on the principles of body expression and improvisation, this course is an introduction to contemporary dance . Beyond technical training, the notion of interpretation is deployed by the feelings and the imagination of the young dancer from 9 to 11 years old.
A presentation will be organized at the end of the session. The presentation will be videotaped and sent to the participant.


The class will be transmitted in French.

Courses are automatically cancelled from the date on which written notice was sent. No fees or penalties are charged if courses are cancelled before they begin.

Can I take a drop-in class?
You can take a drop-in class at the cost mentionned above. To do so, please create your account on the online platform. The day of the class, check the number of spots available. However, it is not possible to book a drop-in class in advance. Registration will be done on site at the reception at the same time as payment. Your previously created account will facilitate the registration process. Participants who would like to register after taking this drop-in class will receive the same credit applied to their registration fee for the term. 
Are drop-in classes available for the whole session?
Participants can take drop-in classes between session 1 and 11, with the last class (session 12) being a free observation class. As the learning pace increases during the session, participants taking drop-in classes need to be aware of the difficulties and risks associated to the cadence of the class. Depending on the progression of the session, it may be preferable to follow a class of lower level.
Do I need to create an account on the registration platform if I only take drop-in classes?
All participants must complete their account online.
