Professional Training Program
A dance training program that offers students unique techniques designed to strengthen overall performative ability for a diverse range of dance. Designed for emerging artists, we have created a space to develop artists who will be diverse in their movements and/or musical aesthetics with special emphasis on Traditional and Contemporary aesthetics of Africa and the African Diaspora. You will hone your craft through our three-pronged approach: Technique, Exploration, and Application. Technique • Exploration • Application
Ballet Creole exists to create, preserve, and present dance works that testify to the rich heritage of African and Caribbean cultures as they interface with European traditions. Featuring the artistic creation of notable choreographers, including Patrick Parson, founder of Ballet Creole, the repertoire of the Company endeavors to create a dance legacy in Canada through performance and educational projects.
