New beginnings

Our institution is defined by its unwavering commitment to growth and evolution in dance training. In the past two years, we have undertaken timely changes in response to the ever-evolving needs of the dance and arts sector, with a particular focus on cultivating research and career development in the field of Contemporary dance.

Central to our mission is a student-centered philosophy, which informs every aspect of our approach. With each step, we strive to establish an inclusive environment, fostering a hub of artistic energy where creativity, collaboration, and innovation thrive.

Through this transformative period, we have recognized that change presents an opportunity to unite and collectively envision the future we aspire to create. We invite you to join us in this new chapter of our story, as we continue to innovate and evolve. Our recent move to a state-of-the-art facility at Daniels Spectrum in Regent Park and the implementation of a new, student-centered curriculum for our Professional Training Program reflects our commitment to providing a transformational post-secondary education for our students. Our learning community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni has a rich history of embracing innovation, and we are proud to honor this spirit through our ongoing efforts.


The process of changing the name has been complex and thrilling. It has brought energy to the organization; inspiring us to think and innovate expansively. We began this process in 2021, guided by a Rebranding Committee, navigating through community consultation with the utmost care and consideration. We look forward to sharing more about this process with you, answering your questions, and inviting you to step into the School’s next chapter with us in becoming a forward-moving leader in Contemporary dance.
