ABOUT

The Citadel Dance Program (CDP) is a series of weekly dance classes for young people, run by a professional dance company in professional dance studios at The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance. Our mandate is accessibility, inclusiveness and excellence. We welcome young people with extensive as well as no background in dance, and ensure that their experience and training takes them to new levels.

Full scholarships are available for students who live in Regent Park and subsidized rates are available for low-income families. Contact us to talk about either of these options.

The 2017/18 Citadel Dance Program year includes a variety of ballet opportunities. If you or your child are interested in hip hop, or contemporary dance classes, please let us know. With 4-5 interested students, we may be able to add a class to our schedule.

A $25 administration fee is charged on top of regular class fees, once per year. Questions? Reach us at cdp@citadelcie.com  or 416.364.8011 x.7
