Tangente invites you to dance !
© Marc-André Dumais
For over 20 years, Tangente has welcomed students and shared our passion for contemporary dance. In collaboration with a dedicated team of educators, choreographers offer unique and participatory experiences that foster the reception and understanding of dance works.
A unique introduction to the practice, appreciation, and discussion of contemporary dance. Tailored to the experiences and aptitudes of participants, this activity offers an introductory workshop exploring the choreographic world of the artist, as well as a performance of the work (or an excerpt), followed by an artist talk-back.

Thanks to all the schools that enthusiastically participated in Tangente’s 2014-2015 season.
Through our collaboration with the program Une École Montréalaise pour tous, more than 300 students from underprivileged areas of Montreal had the opportunity to explore contemporary gigue and to confront difference in social and artistic contexts.
Thanks as well to the students of l’École secondaire Marie-Rivier and l’Érablière who demonstrated their engagement and willingness to take risks with a choreographic POPUP in collaboration with choreographer Isabelle Boulanger.
