From the moment you arrive in the Department of Contemporary Dance, we treat you as an emerging artist. You stage your own choreographies, collaborate across disciplines, and perform in new works created by your peers.

We are one of the only university dance programs in the world where professors and external choreographers don’t choreograph on students. Instead, we provide you with the conditions to discover and define your own aesthetic, method and process, in a learning environment that embraces an inclusive artistic relationship between mentor and student.

We’re a close-knit department located in the heart of the best dance city in North America: Montreal. Our faculty and students are connected with the city’s independent and experimental performance culture. Our students are self-starters and community-minded. Not only will you leave as a dancer and choreographer, you’ll probably also know how to run lights, do technical production and curate an event or run a show.
