November is often an under-appreciated month – not quite fall, not quite winter – but in Montreal there’s way too much going on to let the month just pass you by: this week, see amazing new documentary films, top-tier UFC fighters and hockey players, opera, circus, theatre and world-class dance, and even do some shopping and music show hopping.

CHOREOGRAPHED COOL: WINTER DANCE IN MONTREAL

Like most professionals, highly skilled and experienced dancers can make their art appear so easy – it’s astounding to see something so beautiful yet so rigorous, and, truth be told, satisfying to see dancers sweat to challenging choreography.

THINGS TO DO IN MONTREAL: JANUARY

Montreal has many secrets – rendez-vous locations, after-hours parties – but let me tell you a secret about winter in Montreal: it’s really not that bad. Oh, there was a time when winter in Montreal meant a certain amount of suffering, but these days, well, we have the technology to not only stay warm but to stay highly entertained.
