The Festival of New Dance, presented annually, remains Neighbourhood Dance Work’s signature event, showcasing some of the most sought after contemporary dance produced in Canada, and providing main stage opportunities for local choreographers. The festival includes main stage performances, site-specific events, workshops, discussion forums, film screenings and art displays. Our artistic vision is to make a diverse program of dance available to the community, to present work that will appeal to a broad audience, and challenge and inspire our long-time supporters.
Our other programs include artistic residencies, professional development workshops and choreographic labs, community collaborations and our work-in-progress series First Look. NDW’s programs are a launching pad for new artistic creations in dance and a critical link that ties us to the larger Canadian dance milieu.
