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.

The Festival defines Contemporary dance, not simply as defined within the canon of dance practice, but as performance dance that is happening NOW. In any festival, one might experience contemporary/modern dance, contemporary/cultural fusion, hip-hop, physical theatre, performance art, butoh, contemporary ballet, tap/clog dancing, etc. and we encourage applicants from all contemporary genres to join us at the Festival.

Please send $15 application fee by cheque or money order (no cash please)
