Dance is an art form that knows no boundaries. It moves beyond linguistic, cultural, political and geographical frontiers. Inspired by this philosophy, the DansEncorps Productions Inc. established the atlantic dance FESTIVAL danse atlantique, in order to bring together representatives of various dance sectors in a collective celebration of artistic excellence. The team is proud of its accomplishments since the Festival’s first edition in 2006.
The aim of the professional dance performances is the discovery of top-level artists from the Atlantic Provinces and Canada. Training development and interaction between the dancers and the general public are the main themes of the Festival. The goal is to establish dialogue and networking between participants, and those who have a passion for dance, in a friendly non-competitive atmosphere. The atlantic dance FESTIVAL danse atlantique strives to pursue this goal by offering a program that is even more complete and divers each year.
