Even if a terrible rain caused the collapse of our major inflated structure, all shows were relocated and we had a record attendance for our indoor concerts!
Also the intensive workshops and the master classes had record numbers of participants. We had a big increase of visitors from various parts of Québec, Ontario, New-Brunswick and 6 states from the USA.
