Merci Montréal! A Reverence for Mount Royal at the Kondiaronk Lookout
Saturday, September 23
In honour of Montréal’s 375th anniversary, L’École supérieure de ballet du Québec, accompanied by the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, wishes to thank the city in which it was founded. And thank you in the language of classical ballet is danced rather than spoken with a curtsy known as the reverence.
As part of a series of short dance performances featured in Montréal’s 375th anniversary official programming, students will perform at the Kondiaronk Lookout, overlooking the city, to express their gratitude to Mount Royal. This special thank you to the mountain celebrates its emblematic and solid presence as well as everything it has offered for thousands of years.
As a lead-up to the performance, Les amis de la montagne hosts a free one-hour guided walk under the theme “Thank You Mount Royal” to discover the Mount Royal Summit. This tour introduces you to the history of Montréal while offering beautiful views of the city and surrounding green spaces.
