YOU dance begins its fifth season!
YOU dance, an outreach initiative of The National Ballet of Canada, stands for Youth, Outreach and Understanding dance. The program is designed to introduce students in grades four, five and six to the world of dance through FREE workshops and performances. Workshops are led by an Artist Educator and present a learning experience for both students and classroom teachers.
Performances, by Apprentices from The National Ballet of Canada, take place in the intimate setting of the Betty Oliphant Theatre in Toronto and regional areas of Ontario. There are numerous opportunities for students and teachers to interact with the artists and the dance works presented through active discussion.
Artistic Director of YOU dance Lindsay Fischer would like to welcome you to the fifth season and thank you for being part of YOU dance this year!

Here is a question we asked Nayara Lopes who just joined our apprentice program. Having moved from Curitiba, Brazil, what surprised you about joining The National Ballet of Canada?
“I knew, of course, the company had a high standard, but now that I am here I am overwhelmed by how big the company is and how truly great they are! The coaching in YOU dance is amazing and everyone is so very friendly and helpful. I am so happy and excited for the year ahead.”
