To subscribe to the whole session, please use the online platform. It is available during the first three weeks of the fall and winter sessions and during the first week of the spring session.
Participants wishing to take a drop-in class must first create an account on the online platform.
Registration for drop-in classes takes place at the reception desk on the evening of the course, subject to availability. We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes in advance.
As the learning pace of the class increases as the session progresses, participants opting for drop-in classes should be aware of the difficulties and risks associated with the pace of the course.
Depending on the progress of the session, it may be preferable to opt for a course with a lower level.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is it possible to try the course before registering?
It is possible to try out a course by taking a drop-in class. The first step is to create an account on the online platform before going to reception. This first drop-in class can be converted into a session subscription, in which case the amount of the drop-in class will be deducted from the session subscription price.
This option is available during the first three weeks of the fall and winter sessions and to the first week of the spring session. It must be made the same evening at the reception desk.
Are drop-in classes available for the whole session?
Participants can take drop-in classes throughout the session (conditions apply), with the exception of the last class, which remains a free observation class.
How can I choose between the levels offered in the different courses?
Each class is designed to offer a gradation of levels to ensure an optimal experience for each participant. Participants can determine which level suits them through the following:
– Adult – Beginner: profile – Participant who is new to dance or has not practiced for several years.
– Adult 1 – Already initiated: profile – Participant who has already taken the beginner dance course for 1 to 2 years or who knows the basis in contemporary dance.

* Levels for Improvisation, Contemporary Barre and Pilates are new for Fall 2023. Having taken these courses in their “multi-level” version in recent years is a sufficient basis to move on to the next level.
