YOU dance Residency

In 2016, YOU dance launched a special residency designed for deeper, long-term impact. The month-long residency programme began in the Regent Park neighborhood. It has since transitioned to the Jane and Finch Community and the Sandra Faire and Ivan Fecan Theatre located at York University.

The YOU dance Residency gives students an extended period to engage more deeply with dance and The National Ballet of Canada in their schools and communities. The residency includes multiple movement and creation workshops at neighbourhood schools, along with performances by the National Ballet’s RBC Apprentices. The residency culminates in an evening where community members are invited to attend a YOU dance performance that includes students who have created their own new works with the support of YOU dance Teaching Artists, as well as local dance groups, alongside the RBC Apprentices.
