Projects subsidized by and for youth!

Here are the innovative projects developed in 2018-2019:

TD Park People

Prima Danse is taking part in the TD Park People program to provide free dance activities in parks.

Through the Youth Take Charge program, the financial support of the Government of Canada allows Prima Danse to meet 45 classes in the Eastern Townships, the Quebec City area, and the greater Montreal area to talk about diversity and assertiveness through dance.

Through the “Fight against homophobia and transphobia program” of the Quebec Ministry of Justice, Prima Danse has been meeting elementary and secondary school students and parents in the farthest regions of Quebec to raise awareness about sexual stereotypes related to homophobia.

Prima Danse would like to thank Opération Enfant Soleil for his financial support. This support help Prima Danse to offer to students some lighting accessories during our dance activities. These new accessories help them to attracted the attention. We’re able to reach a wider youth audience thanks to this investment.
