Ryerson University, in partnership with the Dancer Transition Resource Centre (DTRC) and The National Ballet of Canada, is offering Critical Thinking, a course for professional dancers. The course, offered Monday nights for eleven weeks, will allow professional dancers the opportunity to earn university credits while continuing to work. Amanda Hancox, executive director of the DTRC, has confirmed sixteen students from the National Ballet and two independent artists are currently enrolled. This course is being piloted as a step towards developing a specialized degree program for professional dancers through Ryerson University.
