Guelph Dance

Local Initiatives

Dream, scheme, and create innovative and cutting-edge performance in Guelph.

With all the amazing contemporary dance happening in Guelph, Guelph Dance offers this community-based initiative. Local professional dance artists are invited to create their own Festival event.

  • Local Initiatives is a component of the Dance Festival
  • Artists have complete freedom to present their dance ideas in any way they choose—the only limitation is the artist’s imagination.
  • Guelph Dance provides Festival infrastructure, staffing, and promotion to support the artist’s ideas, along with an artist fee and production costs.
  • Although performing artists do not have to be local, local contemporary dance artists will be given preference.
  • This event will be curated by committee.
