The DansEncorps pre-professional program has developed over the years to allow young Francophones in our region to live their passion for the art of dance as much as for sports or music.  


The DansEncorps pre-professional program is unique in Canada and we are very proud of it, especially since it is accessible to everyone and allows young people to prepare themselves to one day follow a training or professional career without having to leave their family environment.

The program is divided into three stages of progression, from the simplest to the most complex, both in terms of skills and requirements and specific objectives to be achieved. It is entirely non-competitive, except for peer-reviewed performances at provincial, national and international events. Stage and choreographic experience balance the technical work. The goal is to dance on stage or in other public places as often as possible.



Auditions are usually held in August (after the summer intensive program) and are advertised to provide opportunities for all young people who wish to explore dance and pursue professional dance studies after high school. 

Each stage has a name : Spécial Spécial (10 years and up), Spécial Jeune (13 years and up) et Jeune Troupe (15 years and up).
