About Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal:
Founded in 1957, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal (GBCM) is a ballet company that performs both classical Ballet and explores new forms and variations of ballet. Les Grands Ballets performs in Canada and around the world – Ivan Cavallari is the current Artistic Director. Besides its main ballet, GBCM also runs dance classes and workshops through Les Studios, and promotes dance/movement therapy through its National Centre for Dance Therapy.
Les Studios offers dance, fitness and adapted dance classes to the public. GBCM started the program in June 2017. Current or former dancers of Les Grands Ballets teach the classes. GBCM states that Les Studios runs 26 different classes and workshops for all dance levels and many different styles of dance.
The National Centre for Dance Therapy (NCDT) is a division of GBCM that uses dance to improve a person’s well-being. Current standards require that people must have a dance background, graduate university training in clinical psychology and have completed dance/movement therapy courses to receive a dance/movement therapist accreditation. However, there is no such program in Canada. GBCM created NCDT to fill this gap. The charity is currently looking into developing dance/movement therapy master’s programs with McGill University, Concordia University and the University of Montreal. Until such programs start, NCDT offers an Alternate Route training program. The first cohort of 18 Alternate Route students graduated the program in 2015, and GBCM reports that seven are already working as therapists, interns, or on projects. Two have submitted applications to receive accreditation. The second cohort that will receive training from July 2016 to 2018 consists of 23 students.
