Nurturing Top Talent

Choreographic Workshops

Each season, Ballet BC offers workshops to our local dance community that focus on training and development opportunities for the professional dance artist. Hosted by international artists from across Canada and the world, these choreographic workshops explore diverse perspectives and approaches to the creative process, such as learning repertoire and training for contemporary dance.



44 Summer Intensive

Ballet BC’s 44 Summer Intensive program offers pre-professional and professional dancers aged 15 and up the opportunity to further develop their skills and artistry through a two-week, all-day curriculum. Participating dancers will gain invaluable experience in technique, improvisation, company repertoire, and the creative process, supporting the caliber and versatility required for a professional contemporary dance company such as Ballet BC. Dancers will share an inspiring environment while learning from and collaborating with Ballet BC’s outstanding company artists, artistic staff including Artistic Director Medhi Walerski, and invited guests.

Choreographic Lab

Curated by Ballet BC Artistic Director Medhi Walerski, the Choreographic Lab project provides choreographers with the opportunity to work in a theatre residency or site-specific environment, and see their work evolve from creation to production.

Dancers of Today Scholarship

Striving toward a more equitable and diverse future in dance, Dancers of Today aims to provide greater access to dance education, with the ultimate goal of creating a path accessible to all communities to feed into our professional company. The scholarship, supported by the Y.P. Heung Foundation, offers an aspiring dancer the opportunity to further their training through the Arts Umbrella Dance program, with preference given to applicants from BIPOC and  underrepresented communities.
