YOU dance


Due to the unprecedented situation with the COVID-19 outbreak, The National Ballet of Canada has made the difficult decision to cancel YOU dance programming for the remainder of the season and we look forward to resuming in the 2020/21 season.


Repertoire for YOU dance performances has been specially selected for students in grades four to six. Performances are enhanced by pre and post-performance discussions and curriculum-based teacher resources for each classroom.
