Who we are

The Canada Dance Festival (CDF) is a presenter of Canadian dance and a catalyst for the development of the art form. As a national organization that presents live dance performances, our activities reflect the diverse cultural and regional landscape of the country, and foster a healthy and stimulating environment for community networking, artistic exchange and audience development.

CDF Strategic Plan

The CDF, in partnership with our co-producer the National Arts Centre, has been presenting, advancing and celebrating Canadian dance excellence in the nation’s capital for more than 25 years. Our mandate: to ignite passion, inspire creativity, and unify community in support of dance in Canada is the lens through which all our activities are programmed.

The Canada Dance Festival is a proud member of CanDance – The Canadian Network of Dance Presenters, Ottawa Festivals, Dance Ontario and The Canadian Dance Assembly.
