Young children participate in a movement class.

To demonstrate and promote the essential role of the arts in the learning and development of every child, highly acclaimed dance educator and performer Mary Ann Lee continues to provide annual seminars at Canada's National Ballet School.

Held annually in October, the program incorporates dance and movement into all areas of the curriculum using high-quality, innovative, and sequential arts instruction. Through a variety of activities, the workshops enable teachers-in-training and dance teachers to explore the early childhood age group and approaches to working with young dancers.

This year's workshop will be held on October 29 at Canada's National Ballet School from 10:00am - 1:00pm.
