Every July, dance teachers are invited to Canada's National Ballet School for a professional development workshop. Experienced and celebrated NBS artistic staff share their approaches and ideas to inspire  participants in teaching their own dance students. NBS Physiotherapist staff partner with NBS artistic staff in several sessions to lend their perspective on challenges and solutions faced in the studio.

  • Four intensive days of classes, workshops, and interactive pedagogical lectures with NBS Faculty and guest teachers
  • Practical sessions will illustrate how to incorporate material into your classes
  • Pedagogical discussions with featured teachers will be enhanced with student demonstrators
  • Opportunity to observe NBS professional ballet students in their Summer School Program
  • Networking with local, national, and international colleagues



Join us from July 17-20 as we explore effective teaching strategies for guiding students (ages of 9-19) to develop beautiful classical port de bras, in tandem with effectively aligned, expressive upper body usage. Experienced and celebrated NBS artistic staff will share strategies they utilise daily to demystify this fascinating challenge. In several sessions NBS’ Physiotherapists will partner with NBS artistic staff to add their perspective.
