Co-producing is a vital part of NAC Dance’s ongoing activities; investing in the creation and development of new Canadian and international works contributes significantly to the artistic expression of contemporary choreographers. Since 2000, NAC Dance has co-produced more than 50 new works, while acting as co-production partner of the biennial Canada Dance Festival.
The Canada Dance Festival, in partnership the National Arts Centre, has been presenting, advancing and celebrating Canadian dance excellence in the nation’s capital for more than 25 years with a mandate to ignite passion, inspire creativity, and unify community in support of dance in Canada. The CDF is a presenter of Canadian dance, a community leader and a catalyst for the development of the art form, of emerging and established artists and new audiences. As a national organization that presents live dance performances, its 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.
