Stories and Testimonials


Blair Neufeld - Social Work and Counselling

When I reflect on my dance career now, I feel very lucky to have achieved all the goals I set for myself. However, I had to know when to create new goals.



Marie Josée Danbrook (née Dubois) - Computer Programmer

I knew I was incredibly lucky, and I lived my dancer's life with passion and commitment. However, I was fully aware that my dream could be short-lived, and I had always known that I would eventually do something else.



Samantha-Jane Gray - Emerging Artist

"The DTRC is a network of incredible people to teach and guide young dancers, and I feel proud to be a part of this community."



Noam Gagnon - Artistic Director and Entrepreneur

"During my first year dancing professionally, I became a member of the DTRC. I also began Pilates, which did wonders for me and I knew that I would like to become a certified teacher one day."



Mary-Louise Albert - Artistic Managing Director

"Like so many fellow dancers, I applied my work ethic, drive and tunnel vision – all qualities needed to succeed in the world of professional dance – to undertake my new adventure: going back to school."
