Festival Description

CanAsian International Dance Festival presents a biennial Festival that showcases local, national and international artists and companies that range from classical to the cutting edge. During off-Festival years it works in collaboration with other dance organizations to showcase extraordinary dance and music that have Asian foundations. The CanAsian Dance Festival fosters and promotes diverse expressions of Asian aesthetics through dance in Canada by:

  • Commissioning the creation of original Canadian dance and music by outstanding choreographers and composers;
  • Presenting traditional dance art forms as well as new dance that integrates contemporary and traditional principles, ideas or practices;
  • Producing exceptional professional development activities for dance artists through its workshops, master classes and forums.
