Stories and Testimonials


Johan Persson - Photographer

Having had a passion for photography since my teenage years I naturally turned to this other artistic love, using it as an outlet to work through my changing professional identity.



Martine Lamy - Ballet teacher

Even as a teenager at Canada’s National Ballet School, I remember being realistic about the length of the career I may have – I was hoping for twenty years, but knew it could be much shorter for a number of reasons.



Thomas K. Hafford, MD - Physician

All dancers can feel this profound, and often painful, transition out of dance and into civilian life – with its ordinary anatomy and energies – on their periphery.



Sonya Stefan - Filmmaker

The DTRC has always been supportive, giving me peace of mind and easing some of my worries as I was negotiating my new life as a single mother and student.



Patricia Gelinas - Marketing and International Business

In 1999, my dance career was coming to an end and I knew I had to make a major change. Despite my fear, I threw myself into my transition the way I used to give myself to dance.
