PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Acquiring new knowledge, improving skills, reaching professional goals, developing know-how, these are some of the opportunities offered to dance professionals through the RQD Continuing Education Program since 1999. (Information available in French only)

The Dancer Training Support Program is an indispensable tool for dancers whose economic conditions are as precarious as they were when the program was set up in 1993. Each year, the Program assists dancers by subsidizing the cost of regular training in various techniques throughout the year. This training is essential to the profession, whether the dancer is in period of rehearsal, performance, unemployment or social assistance. This support takes the form of a financial aid paid directly to the dancers upon presentation of their training receipts.

MASTER PLAN FOR PROFESSIONAL DANCE IN QUEBEC 2011-2021
The Master Plan for Professional Dance in Quebec is a first, comprehensive review of the sector and all of its components, which have the potential to radically transform Quebec’s dance landscape over the next ten years. It looks at professional dance in Quebec from within and without, on a macro- and microscopic scale, using a terminology that we hope will form the basis of a common language.

RESOURCES AND PUBLICATIONS

DANCER PRIZE (PRIX INTERPRÈTE)
Created in 2014, as part of RQD's 30th anniversary celebrations, the Prix de la danse de Montréal - Catégorie INTERPRÈTE présenté par le Regroupement québécois de la danse et la Caisse Desjardins de la Culture is awarded to an artist on the basis of artistic approach, interpretation quality and commitment to choreographic work and the community of dancers. It recognize publicly the performers who connect with audiences, and through whom dance takes form and comes to life on stage. This $10,000 prize is presented during the awards ceremony held by Les Prix de la danse de Montréal (PDM). The prizewinner is selected by the PDM jury.

HERITAGE
The Toile-mémoire de la danse au Québec [1895-2000] brings together a variety of individuals and companies, as well as training and presentation sites, which are related through historical filiations of transmission, training or artistic collaboration. It is an anthology of stories that shed light on each other. At the forefront, we find the dance figures that allow us to discern, in the background, the aesthetic and stylistic dimensions of the affiliations.
