  • Structure their identity

Get young people moving through dance – an accessible sport and art form!

It can be hard to talk about sexual education, bullying, racism, and assertiveness with the young people in your life. They can be sensitive topics, and you don’t always have the right words, means, time, resources, or tools to broach the subject.

Prima Danse is a turnkey solution with educational dance workshops that have been reviewed by social workers and adapted to the reality and needs of youth.

Founded as a non-profit 10 years ago, Prima Danse uses the art of dance as social outreach and as a way to foster healthy lifestyles among client groups that are considered vulnerable. Using dance to get young people, and even seniors, moving means creating an environment that is conducive to discussing social issues, fostering dialogue and sharing, developing self-esteem, and highlighting the strength in our diversity.

To finance its social mission and reduce costs for clients, Prima Danse organizes top-level dance competitions and other events that are highly sought-after by Quebec dancers.
