Sharing Dance

Sharing Dance is Canada’s National Ballet School’s flagship community outreach initiative offering free dance programs for all Canadians—to get healthy, active and artistically engaged.

Featuring multifaceted programming and supported through a collection of free online resources, Sharing Dance includes:

  • High-quality dance activities for children and youth for classrooms and community settings.

  • Health and wellness dance programs for seniors, focused on improving quality of life and creating community
  • Sharing Dance Day, an annual, nation-wide, engagement program culminating in multigenerational community performances on Sharing Dance Day in early June each year.
