Canadian Dance Assembly 2012
The Canadian Dance Assembly is pleased to host its 6th National Conference October 20-22, 2012 in Ottawa- Presented in collaboration with Cultural Pluralism in the Arts Movement Ontario (CPAMO), The Aga Khan Museum, and the National Arts Centre Dance Department. We look forward to gathering with the dance community once again to be inspired, exchange and dialogue, build community, gain new insights, and most of all help shape the future of dance in Canada!
CDA's National conference is inspired by the intersection of pluralism and technology in a rapidly changing environment. Adapt your creative and managerial skills with exciting forums and panel discussions, learn from incredible keynote speakers, participate in tangible workshops on video, projections, and new modern applications in dance. Explore and embrace technology and diversity in dance while discovering new partnerships and networking opportunities that will inspire new thinking and a vibrant future for dance.
In conjunction with this year's conference, the Canadian Dance Assembly will recognize and celebrate exceptional members of the dance milieu with Canada’s first National Dance Awards - TheI love dance/J’aime la danse Awards!
Following the conference, stay in Ottawa for the Oct. 23rd Arts Day on the Hill organized by the Canadian Arts Coalition. Meet with MP’s and build a case for dance while networking with artists in various disciplines.
