We’re taking CanAsian’s programming in an exciting new direction and we’re

thrilled to share the details with you!


After much thought and discussion we recognized that there’s a strong and growing need to support homegrown Canadian talent, so we developed an inspired five-year strategy that will see our KickStart program become the primary focus for CanAsian Dance.


Our expanded KickStart program will include annual commissions as well as workshops geared toward the broader artistic community. With this shift in focus, CanAsian will nurture and showcase the work of Canadian choreographers rather than import the work of international artists.


We’re enthusiastic about supporting Canadian choreographers by providing them with an array of opportunities to develop their work and grow as artists.
