2022-23 Student Outreach

The accessibility and democratization of contemporary arts for Quebec youth are founding values for FTA. Student Outreach programs encourage high school, college and university students to discover the pleasure of the performing arts, stimulate their imagination and invite them to question the role and process of the artist.

The impressive quality of the students’ commitment never ceases to reinforce our conviction of the importance of confronting them with strong contemporary works that question our society.

Festival TransAmériques is a festival of contemporary dance and theatre that presents an average of 25 shows in performance venues and in outdoor public spaces over a two-week period. The 17th edition of the FTA will be held from May 2445 to June 8, 2023 in Montreal.


Student Outreach programs are possible thanks to

Workshops offered

From Words to the Body: Imaginary Reality

This workshop is a celebration of dance as an act of imagination, in order to experiment with our physical realities in new ways. An invitation to open up to new connections and thus explore ways bodies want to move when influenced by the imagination.

Introduction to Krump and its History

Melika DezCreated in the early 2000s, krump is noted for a technique that requires strength, power, control and self-expression that is both raw and pure. Often categorized as a dance form that appeals to so-called typically masculine characteristics, krump is a style still dominated by men. This workshop is an introduction to the history of the form and the place that women have within it.
