The Young Canadians School of the Performing Arts

The Young Canadians School of the Performing Arts is an engaging opportunity to training in dance, voice, and performance, by a professional faculty. Training is provided by a diverse team of specialists who foster technical development, artistic creation, and performance excellence.

The Young Canadians School is comprised of 120 dedicated youth from the Calgary area who wish to train in a professional setting. Members train to deliver exceptional performance experiences representing the Calgary Stampede Foundation, and the Calgary Stampede.

Our Junior Young Canadians consist of 48 energetic youth between the ages of 7-11. Annual casting is held in January for interested candidates who are passionate about dance, vocal, performance, and wishing to be part of the annual TransAlta Grandstand at the Calgary Stampede.
