Let's talk about cinema

Taller cine debate en español
Through the projection of recent Latin American films, this workshop proposes to visualize and discuss cinematographic productions that challenge and broaden the image of contemporary Latin America. These are fictional films that seek to rescue the multiple and rich identities present in Latin American countries that escape the reductionist and hostile vision that the media seek to impose. In terms of humor or drama, action or art cinema, the films chosen give a multiple perspective on the complex fabric of communities that make up the contemporary image of Latin America. After the screening, we will make a debate between the participants following the reflections left by the film, in a dynamics of dialogue and learning.
Note: Selected films will have subtitles in French (or in English, depending on availability).
6:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Piano course

Through these courses (available in French, English and Spanish) we will be able to establish the first technical bases of the piano for beginners and, for those who are already at a more advanced level, we will work to solidify the technique and the capacity of musical expression through the instrument.

This new project, in addition to teaching the first notions and concepts with the instrument, will allow students to explore the universal classical repertoire of the great European composers and of different periods in history, and to discover the rhythms and colors of Latin American diversity and its composers.

Project in alliance with Piano Academy Medellin, Colombia.

Argentine Tango Workshop

Legados aprender español - tango argentino - montreal

In this introductory tango workshop, we will work on body awareness (proprioception), the tango embrace and connection. We are going to discuss the two roles that form the dance couple to better understand the dialogue between the two people when it comes time to dance. It is not necessary to bring tango shoes.

Intercultural choir for adults

Legados is offering a new cross-cultural choir class for adults aged 17 and up. At Legados, we consider singing and music as being universal languages that strongly contribute to the construction of a diverse society. The choral repertoire is primarily Latin American, although soundscapes specific to Montreal are also explored. It is the members of the choir who will give color to the sounds of our choir, while being encouraged to create dialogues between cultures.

Music allows us to rediscover ourselves and provides us with tools for coexistence and encounter.


From 17 years old

Children's Choir in Spanish

Legados seeks to expand and enrich its children's choir class by exploring and discovering the soundscapes of Latin America. A choir is a space of coexistence and permanent dialogue, and it is in this space that we want to forge new bonds through music. Children between the ages of 7 and 16 will find in the Legados Children's Choir a space to develop their vocal resources, discover new musical genres and cultures through a quality musical experience through singing.

Music in childhood is not only an excellent pedagogical tool for the musical education of children, but in an environment such as Montreal, it also contributes to strengthening the socio-cultural fabric and helps create spaces for empathy and dialogue.

Creative Dance and Word Workshop

Taller creativo de danza y palabra - Legados Montreal

This workshop proposes to explore through our own body in movement the sensations that a germinal word -made of memories and trajectories that are often migrant and silenced- awakes in us.

The reading of sensitive literature (poetry, short fragments, lyrics), as well as the memories of our own trajectories, come to incite bodily sensations that will be carefully guided to allow creative exploration and choreographic body composition.

Afro-Colombian and rioplatenses movements and rhythms, such as cumbia and tango, will be incorporated, from the space of freedom that contemporary dance offers. From that body composition we will individually seek to provoke the act of writing to name the experience of how we merge both spheres.

A workshop to experience and feel, to go from the inner movement of the spirit to the act of dancing and writing. Starting from the premise that life is dance, this workshop is a proposal to remind us of it and to write our own dance steps.

Painting workshop

Taller de pintura

Aimed at Spanish speakers or people who understand Spanish, the goal of this workshop is to embark on a creative awakening adventure where each person can make the most of their own artistic potential. For this, we will learn the main technical bases of painting, explore together inspiring references in the history of art and especially open to our own artistic impulses. The goal is to develop our pictorial language and to promote the understanding of the main grammars of painting.

In this workshop, we will design:

  • Various exercises to stimulate creativity through the creation of images.
  • Acrylic paint bases and other mixed techniques.
  • Basics of color theory and their emotional expressions.
  • Bases of composition.



From 13 years old.
