L'Association La Girandole offers a variety of dance workshops designed to initiate students of all ages to dance and to the performing arts.Our workshops are given by professional artists and are geared towards francophone students as well as Anglophone students in French immersion schools.

These workshops emphasize movement, language and music, in order to address stimulating themes which respond to the objectives set forth by the Alberta Minister of Education's French, Social Studies and Physical Education programs.

 Three types of workshops are available:

Introduction: Over a period of 2 to 5 hours, this workshop allows children to be introduced to a dance style while having fun.

Exploration: In three days, children will discover the basics of a new style of dance.

Composition: This five-day workshop allows children to explore dance and deepen enough style so they can present a short performance to the school and parents.
