Discover French Canadian dance and our culture’s artistic traditions! This workshop inspires the participants to develop an appreciation and skill for both the dance and for the francophone language in its rich cultural context.


International Dance

Students and teachers will appreciate the richness of cultures by learning dances from different countries! Travel around the world (without packing a suitcase) and appreciate the differences and similarities between dances and artistic practices of various cultures! Participants will explore fascinating facts associated with the dances, music and cultural background. This workshop is ideal for multicultural settings to celebrate cultural diversity!


Holidays Around the World

Students and teachers will have the opportunity to learn and explore different Holiday traditions celebrated in different countries.

A great way to celebrate cultural diversity with your school community during the workshops and during the final dance performance.

Make things easy for the teaching staff during Holidays and let the team at Tradansa organize your show. This program is only available in November and December. Space is limited.


Workshop Logistics

Each class or group (an average of 35-45 students) receives three workshops of 40-50 minutes each and will learn three to five dances. Usually, each class/group will prepare two of these dances for the performance which will be held on the last day of your school’s dance program.

The performance is a great way for students to showcase their new dance skills to their parents and the school community while meeting part of the curriculum requirements! It is a magical moment which is greatly appreciated from the schools we’re working with.
