We are pleased to share that Citadel + Compagnie was one of 668 sport and recreation organizations across Canada to receive grant funding from Jumpstart’s Sport Relief Fund. The Sport Relief Fund helps community organizations like ours continue to provide access to activities like dance during these difficult times.

We are grateful for this support as it will go a long way towards helping us take our Citadel Dance Program online and keep the children in our Regent Park community growing through the arts.

Beginning in January 2021, we will be offering a mix of weekly video lessons, and monthly live Zoom classes in both ballet and tap. Ballet classes will be led by our returning much-loved instructor Portia Wade, and we are excited to welcome the incredibly talented Dianne Montgomery as our new tap instructor. We are so fortunate to have these two educators sharing their passion and experience and are absolutely certain the kids are going to love them. Look out for information in the new year on a very special guest instructor who will be leading the monthly live Zoom classes for Ballet 8-10!

We have truly missed connecting with our community of aspiring young dancers and cannot wait to welcome back our Citadel Dance Program families safely online. Registration is now open!
