Since 1987, the Canada Dance Festival has been a national leader in commissioning both original work and presenting the best in Canadian dance. As contemporary dance is, by definition, a celebration and exploration of current dance trends, our festival has dramatically changed over the years. Each festival is a snapshot of our history, our rich and diverse culture, and our Canadian stories and experiences – told through the art of dance.
Most of all, the Canada Dance Festival is a showcase and celebration of how the art of dance and its community of supporters is evolving, growing and flourishing in this country.
Over the years we have challenged, excited and entertained many audiences! Take a look at some of our materials and performers from past festivals, and stay tuned for details about the 2017 festival!
