The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts
The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts is our largest community youth program. The troupe of 160 receive training in the disciplines of voice, dance and gymnastics. Each student receives tuition for the program valued at $7000. Thus, The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts is open to anyone with passion and skill.
The Young Canadians are proud of their 47 year history with the Calgary Stampede and being one of the youth groups supported by the Calgary Stampede Foundation.
Through The Young Canadians School of Performing Arts, these performers bring the Calgary Stampede's own unique brand of western hospitality to audiences throughout the year. Their feature performance at the TransAlta Grandstand Show during the Stampede's 10-day festival is an integral part of the evening entertainment package, but the group, their training and their commitment are year-round.
