The Carnegie Dance Troupe acknowledges that our dancing takes place on the unceded Territory of the Coast Salish People; Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh
Since 2006 the principle supporting The Carnegie Dance Troupe is absolute inclusivity. Performances are created through a process of collaboration, seeking to connect us to our body, to our breath, to the energy of the earth, to each other and our diverse communities.
Exploring themes through dance, music, poem and film, this work-in-progress weaves together new choreographic directions with The Carnegie Dance Troupe’s repertoire.

Workshop Leader - Mireille Rosner

In memory of Sarah Good (1948-2018)

Her spirit and contributions to the group have enriched us and we hold her in high esteem.
