Fonds philanthropique Fernand Nault

Fonds philanthropique Fernand Nault (FPFN), dedicated to dance, is a unique lever to awaken and generate interest towards our artistic heritage in dance.


Considering that Fernand Nault was an important figure having worked on the development of dance on a professional level, on the training of dancers, choreographers and teachers, that he has largely supported and participated in several initiatives in dance, the Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault (FCFN) wanted to create the FPFN, first, to immortalize the memory of Fernand Nault and, secondly, to promote dance by supporting activities of staging, production, editing, publishing, education and formation.


To realize the mission of the FPFN, FCFN will favor among others:

  • helping for the production of the choreographic works of Fernand Nault;
  • helping for the production of heritage choreographic works from Quebec and/or Canada;
  • assisting for the next generation of dance teachers, choreographers and performers;
  • helping for the edition on dance;
  • any other activity in accord with the mission of the FPFN.

By creating the FPFN, FCFN proposes a unique lever to arouse interest to the heritage in dance, support the realization of projects in dance, and contribute to the development of the arts in the community.
