Your contributions will support two initiatives at the heart of the Danse Danse mission:
Get Youth into Dance
Started in 2005, this program gives young people the opportunity to see free performances in the Danse Danse series. The aim is to bring them an awareness and an appreciation of contemporary dance and movement. The targeted clientele are adolescents (14 to 17 years old) recruited mainly from among youth in difficulty and/or from low-income backgrounds.
Launched in 2006, the Carte Blanche program fosters creation by emerging local choreographers at strategic moments of their careers by offering them residencies and directly investing co-production shares in an artistic production. The objective of fund-raising events is to give artists increased development possibilities that enable them to create new works.
Danse Danse will place part of the donations in an endowment fund in the fund-matching program of the Placement Culture section of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.
