Devoted to the art of dance and the improvement of living conditions, Monique Goyer, performer, choreographer and professor, has acquired more than 35 years of experience in the field as a professional artist. Graduated from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing, educational researcher and specialized in the art of teaching to children, she has achieved many accomplishments within numerous training institutions. She is responsible for the inception of many artistic organisations such as the Conservatoire de Danse de Montréal where she dedicated herself to just as much at the level of the Professional Training Program than the artistic and administrative level. Her enthusiasm for the scene and creation leads her to the choreographing of numerous children's ballets, contemporary oeuvres for dance students, 56 video clips for the renowned Caillou character, the coaching of actors and other professionals in various dancing scenes for the television and movie industry. Her optimistic vision of the world of teaching drives her to write a manifesto on the art of education of dance to the young public, which is currently used as the groundwork for the formation of future professors.

The Ballet Théâtral de Montréal (BTM) is really one of a kind dance school as regard its teaching method. True, one might say that all dance school offering styles like classical, modern, jazz or even tap dance pretty much teach the same art form. There are different styles, different teachers but we are all talking about the communication of that art form called dancing.
Where the BTM is a truly unique school, is in its mission, its goal and in its teaching approach. Founded by Mme Monique Goyer who’s about to celebrate her 35th year in the field of teaching dance, who’s now authoring an educational manifesto on the art of teaching dance to young dancers, the BTM strives to maintain an environment where it can offer high quality standard training that is aiming at the social, physical, artistic and personal development of the young dancer willing to learn dance. It insists on the importance of permitting each student to understand what he does, so as to allow him to move up the levels, increase his intelligence on the subject, thus, be able to perform well. And so, in the BTM’s classes, happiness, hard work, pride and confidence go hand in hand.
The BTM offers initiation to dance classes for the 3 to 5 years old age group, technical preparation to dance classes for the 6 to 11 years old age group and classical, modern, jazz and tap dance classes for adolescent and young adults.
