The LADMMI media centre houses a collection of more than 2,000 documents, which include reference works, videos, monographs, periodicals, CDs, DVDs, photos of LADMMI performances, educational kits, videos of choreographies from the contemporary repertory, press clippings, and various other documents.
Since 2006, the LADMMI media centre has specialized in acquiring works from the Quebec repertory from the 1950s to recent times. The media centre has acquired a large number of videos presenting the choreographic repertory of contemporary dance companies in Montreal thanks to the generosity of numerous donors, including Linda Rabin, Tassy Teekman, Pierre Lapointe, Alex MacSween, Myriam Belzile and the Borough of Outremont.

Activities to help students enter the job market, such as public performances, are part of the learning and evaluation process. They serve to introduce our young artists to professional experiences. We invite choreographers and talent scouts from the business to attend so they can follow the progress made by our dancers.
As part of the Danse Danse program, LADMMI is host to various dance artists from abroad who are on tour in Montreal. These conferences give these choreographers, dancers or designers the opportunity to present their work and discuss the biographies, work methods and procedures of these creative artists.
Contact with these renowned artists:
- opens students up to the world and broadens their horizons;
- gives students an opportunity to sample new esthetics and other ways in which creators work;
- helps determine the influence of different life environments on the concerns and choices of creators;
- provides an opportunity to experience different training techniques;
- prepares students to appreciate the performances of these artists from different places.
