Professional development program


Ballet classes - Contemporary classes - Workshops for professionals

Classes and workshops are open to dancers and artists of all backgrounds



Voluntary donation based classes with our experienced and internationally renowned faculty teaching live from their homes in Montreal, Goteborg, Las Vegas, London and Hannover!

Our heart is with our community who is being particularly hard hit during these difficult times. We want to reach out and stay connected and stay in shape while safely practicing social distancing and self isolation (or in some cases quarantine) while keeping our faculty employed.


We miss you and can't wait to see you online!!
