Conservatory Performances and Outreach 

Balcony Main.jpeg

The Conservatory is dedicated to making the arts accessible for the enjoyment, enrichment and education of all community members, irrespective of age, ability, race, ethnicity, gender identity or socioeconomic status.  


Our dancers are delighted to share their artistry with the community.

We are frequent performers at festivals, senior residences, schools and community centres, and at events like Culture Days, Family Day, International Dance Day and Kingston Pride. 

We offer performances and cultural engagement services on a no-cost or donation basis.  

We believe that finances should not be a barrier to sharing dance with our community.


June 22nd, 2024:  The Conservatory community presents our annual gala performance, Becoming, featuring the collaborative works of our dance community (aged three through adult), as they showcase their growth and artistry.  We invite you to come celebrate the journey of discovery as dancers explore the gifts that reside in the collective power of community, in the world around us, and within each of us.  Location:  The Kingston Grand Theatre, Regina Rosen Auditorium.  


The Conservatory was thrilled to invite the entire Kingston community for a celebration of courage, kindness, love -- and a whole lot of magic -- at our gala performance Happily Ever After, at the Grand Theatre.  This family-friendly, inclusive performance was presented by Conservatory dance artists of all ages and abilities, and culminated in a presentation of the full-length fairytale ballet, Cinderella.  Audience members were transported to a land of tiny dancing pumpkins, mischievous mice, brave bluebirds, winged horses, regal princesses and noble fairies who helped Cinderella to see that she had all the magic she needed right inside.  Enjoy this clip from Cinderella, courtesy of Tony Hicks, to see the the wonder, beauty, joy and friendship that The Conservatory shares with the community.


The Conservatory is pleased to offer dance outreach, education and engagement experiences, such as Ballet Behind the Scenes talks, lectures, demonstrations, classes, interactive dance events and community workshops for all ages and abilities.  

For example, in Ballet Behind the Scenes, we peek behind the curtain into the magical world of ballet and its timeless fairytale classics, such as CinderellaThe Nutcracker and The Snow Maiden.  Join us as we journey to magical lands full of Waltzing Flowers and Dancing Snow to watch enchanted characters like the Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Prince  and Sugar Plum Fairy perform.  We'll invite you join in the fun as we learn and perform together choreography from  these iconic ballets, like the lively Candy Canes or Mice dances!


Dancers of every age have their wishes come true, as they try on professional costumes and have their pictures taken with ballerinas and danseurs from The Conservatory. Community members can also explore how pointe shoes are made, try on tiaras, make ballet-themed crafts and enjoy the wonder of dance.  Conservatory community events are always a huge hit with all adults and kids alike!
