Dance Collection Danse
Canada’s dance history is filled with remarkable people who took risks and pushed the development of the art form. Dance history reflects moments in our political history, immigration history, military history, social history, feminist history and gay rights. It is an ephemeral art form and requires special care to ensure that the art and the artists are not lost to time.
Dance Collection Danse is a national resource centre and repository for Canadian dance history. DCD’s purpose is to provide a public space for research, education, exhibition, performance – a virtual and physical home for learning about the art of dance, both past and present.
