Series 8:08 was created to promote the creative development of professional Canadian dance artists; to build a strong sense of artistic community; and to build a knowledgeable, appreciative audience for new dance.
We offer innovative professional development workshops to professional dance artists, taught by established dance professionals. These are opportunities to explore alternative techniques and practices, as well as the creative visions and processes of diverse dance artists.
The Choreographic Performance Workshops or CPWs are showings of short works-in-progress by professional dance artists. Join us on the last Saturday of (almost) every month from September to February to discover Canadian dance in the making.
An 8-month residency for two to four selected artists. This is a partnership with Dovehouse Dance Ballroom and two other studios. A small report and an entry for our blog will be required after completion of the residency. The selected choreographers will also have a final showing of their work at the end of our season.
