Youth Workshops



© Marc-André Dumais

For over 20 years, Tangente has been sharing its passion for contemporary dance with school children. Each year, with the support of our education department, artists programmed at Tangente offer unique and participative experiences for these young audiences which help to develop their spectatorship and understanding of their choreographic work. Our school workshops are designed for primary and secondary levels. They are great opportunities to discover contemporary dance: its practice, its appreciation and its critical analysis. The workshops are tailored to the participants’ abilities, interests and age group and are structured in three parts:

• A practical workshop introducing participants to the choreographic aesthetic
• A performance (or an excerpt)
• An one-to-one discussion with the artist

Tangente and the choreographer Isabelle Boulanger / compagnie La Grande Fente participated to the programme Schools Host an Artist, which gave 28 students, from the concentration dance program at Lucien Pagé school, the opportunity to discover the different steps of the creation of a show through a 10 weeks workshop. Their original choreography was presented last April 29, at Espace Georges-Émile-Lapalme for the International dance day.
