Get Youth into Dance Program

A GREAT WAY TO SUPPORT YOUTH AND DANCE

Get Youth into Dance is to increase access to contemporary dance, to get beyond economic, social and cultural barriers by offering tickets to performances of the Danse Danse season to specifically targeted schools and organizations. 

Thanks to donations from private and public corporations, our clientele of young people aged 14 and over, comes from high schools and organizations targeted by Danse Danse. The objective is to have them discover a cutting edge, multidisciplinary and innovative art form that they often have never been exposed to – contemporary dance.

Since its inception, Get Youth into Dance has allowed more than 4,600 adolescents from schools and youth centres in the Montreal area to attend performances presented by Danse Danse at Théâtre Maisonneuve in Place des Arts.
