Do you have questions about your current dance practice? Are you considering a parallel career or thinking about a career outside of dance altogether?


These topics are challenging so we have enlisted one of our service professionals to help you navigate the first stages in preparing for transition. She will also answer some of the hard questions that you likely have.

We want to share strategies for finding out what is important to you, and how to identify your transferrable skills by focusing on:

As an added bonus we are offering a few one-on-one sessions after the open online question period. If you are interested, please register ahead of time at the following email address: Sessions are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

About the Presenters:

As a career counsellor in private practice for over 10 years, Anne Carbert supports people to clarify what they want for their careers, explore options, and make confident and courageous career decisions. Having navigated significant career and life changes herself, her work emphasizes meaning, creativity, and quality of life. She particularly enjoys offering career support to people who are navigating so-called “unconventional” and self-directed career paths in arts and culture, non-profits, and entrepreneurship. Anne has a master’s degree in counselling psychology from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto.

Anne will be joined by Kasia Hannah, DTRC’s Director of Member Services. Basing her approach from an anti-oppressive framework, Kasia strives to create an open and inclusive space for all members to access the valuable services available to them at the DTRC. She supports all genres of dance and is interested in hearing more voices from the stigmatized dance communities, ensuring all dancers have accessibility to a stable future. 

Letter from Executive Director

Dear Friends,  

I hope you are all safe and taking all precautionary measures to ensure your continued health.

Our series of free professional development workshops over the last few weeks have sparked interest from dance professionals across the country and been viewed by colleagues internationally. We had about 150 individuals register for our six web-based programs in April!

The DTRC will continue to offer free programming in the coming weeks in both official languages. We recently had a great workshop in French about the career transition process and thought we would offer similar content to our English-speaking members. A practitioner will lead this workshop with experience helping DTRC members. Our Director of Member Services, Kasia Hannah, will accompany her. If you have ever thought about retraining and have questions, this is a great session to attend!

We are curious to hear more from you about the challenges you are facing and the content that you feel we need to address in the coming weeks. We have representatives across the country that can field questions. Find your local contact here.

Finally, remember to reach out to us about any counselling or professional development questions that you have at

I look forward to seeing you in the Zoom Room!

Wishing you strength and resiliency,
