A UNIQUE INITIATIVE
Part of Les Grands Ballets’ broader vision, the National Centre for Dance Therapy will use dance to promote the health and well-being of individuals. The first phase of operations involves four pilot projects conducted in association with four university health centres: the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal (IUGM), the PERFORM Centre of Concordia University, the Centre hospitalier universitaire (CHU) Saint-Justine and the Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM). 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 and movement therapy, clinical research, and Canada’s first graduate-level dance therapy training program. 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 2015 mainly consist of pilot projects and research projects. Download the brochure
