TAKING THE LEAP in a shifting landscape

A Gathering for Emerging Dance Creators

April 2023

Date + other details To be announced in December 2022
10:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m.
Language: French and English
Open to all / by donation

CONTENT // This gathering offers a space for meetings and exchange, while helping participants navigate a changing dance environment: one in which many organizations have undergone significant changes in direction and/or structure (due to a convergence of factors amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic). In addition, many young choreographers have lacked opportunities to practice their art “in the real world” and are struggling to imagine their future.

Our intention is to give you hope, and soften the boundaries to encourage new avenues of connection in our milieu. We will begin with a plenary session and testimony by guest artist, followed by sharing in virtual breakout rooms.

PREPARATION // In order to get the most out of this event, we encourage you to read the introductory chapter  “Montreal” in our guide Taking the Leap﹥
