A UNIQUE INITIATIVE

Part of Les Grands Ballets’ broader vision, the National Centre for Dance Therapy (NCDT) uses dance to promote the health and well-being of individuals. Its implementation phase (2013-2016) involves pilot projects conducted in association with various partners from the health and social services sectors. The first project of its kind to be conceived and implemented by a cultural company, the National Centre for Dance Therapy is also the only one in the world offering three interconnected services: dance / movement therapy services, clinical research, and developing a Canadian training program in dance therapy. 

 

Les Grands Ballets are seeking the support of institutional and corporate partners to further this project of national scope. Please note that the activities of the National Centre for Dance Therapy from 2013 to 2016 mainly consist of pilot projects and research projects.
