We are dedicated to developing contemporary dance artists and endeavour to continue our 30 years of engaging audiences and artists.
The Dancing on the Edge Festival Society strives to stimulate the development of high quality contemporary Canadian dance artists and choreography through the presentation of work from emerging and established local, regional, national and international dance artists and companies. Each year the Festival provides a catalyst for discussion about dance, either through forums, roundtable discussions, or talkbacks. The Festival also acts as a facilitator for new dance creations, through commissions, residencies, and co-productions.
International Dance Day 2018
Canadian Dance Assembly
Since 2005, the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) has issued a message on behalf of the dance community in Canada as part of International Dance Day, which takes place annually on April 29th. This year, CDA invited Vivine Scarlett of dance Immersion to share her inspirational message to all Canadians. [Dancing on the Edge Festival](http://www.dancingontheedge.org) appreciates the work of CDA and would like to share their message to our community.
“The universal movement of dance releases the very essence of what is all around us. It connects and weaves so deep that one can feel the wisdom, patience and graciousness of its flow. With each move made there is a giving and receiving communication in that universal experience. Dance is a vehicle that lends itself to learning about oneself. It helps us move through life’s experiences by expressing our stories and our history, by commenting on our present and nurturing our future.
Dance for you.
Dance for us.
Just dance and let the rhythm of our spirits soar in the movement of DANCE.”
