Ballet Coaching in Today's World

Canada's National Ballet School's (NBS) four-day Ideas Exchange for Dance Teachers is an ideal way to renew your inspiration to share your expertise with your students.

Join us from July 16-19 as we explore challenging inherent in coaching young dancers. Discussions will focus on bringing choreography to life, whether you are guiding students to prepare for performances, exams competitions and/or professional careers. Each day will allow you an opportunity to:

  • Participate in a ballet class with fellow teachers
  • Observe full-time NBS students in training classes and coaching sessions
  • Join in pedalogical discussions focussed on coaching dancers from ages 12-17
  • Compare views through a panel discussion focussed on the 'merits and pitfalls' of the world of competition, while also hearing from NBS faculty involved in judging international competitions.

All at NBS hope you will join us for what we believe will be a stimulating and uplifting four days of Ideas Exchange for Teachers.
