The Festival of New Dance has been presented annually since 1990 by Neighbourhood Dance Works. We are committed to the development of a vibrant dance scene and the advancement of emerging and mature dance artists of all disciplines and traditions. We exist to promote growth within the sector and are dedicated to exploring strategies for the facilitation, creation and profiling of original, local works. Through various presentation platforms we also aim to extend the life of dance repertoire from across the county within our region. We foster a collaborative environment for artistic exchange that unites regional, national and international artists of diverse backgrounds and abilities and we play a vital advocacy role in the region through participation on numerous committees. NDW's Festival of New Dance is our province's bridge to dance in Canada.
