Why become a member?

 

The Regroupement québécois de la danse exists for—and because of—its members! 

Since 1984, the RQD has achieved numerous important advances for the discipline and for all those it affects on a daily basis.


By joining the organization, you are demonstrating your affiliation with the large and resplendent professional dance community involved in research, creation or repertoire. You are placing yourself at the centre of a movement, helping to improve the working conditions of the discipline. The more of us there are, the stronger our voice—the more likely we are to be heard when approaching the government and the more visibility we get in the public sphere.

Be part of the debate, of the reflections and decision-making, enrich your practice, broaden your knowledge and skills, enhance your visibility, build a network of contacts, and take advantage of the multitude of benefits offered by RQD.
