All the adapted dance classes will be offered by Émilie Barrette, dance professor and dance therapy intern.
Émilie is a graduate of the École supérieure de ballet du Québec (ESBQ) and of the college program at Ballet Divertimento.
She has completed a Bachelor in Communications and History at the Montréal University, as well as the Alternate Route program of the NCDT. She has also begun a Master’s in Dance at the Université du Québec à Montréal, to further develop her adapted dance practice.
Always on the lookout for new learning opportunities, she is always eager to participate to continuous education trainings in dance and dance education, in Montreal and elsewhere, as, for instance, the Adaptive Dance Teachers Training of the Boston Ballet. Émilie has had the privilege of leading various NCDT projects with children, teenagers and adults on the spectrum or with an intellectual disability.
Since 2020 Emilie has taught the leisure programs and junior classes at the ESBQ. She has also participated in The Nutcracker production as the children’s instructor.
