About Connection Dance Works
Connection Dance Works was founded in 2010. The company’s efforts and initiatives have engaged a growing audience in an active discussion about contemporary dance. Their multi-disciplinary collaborations — with musicians, choreographers, writers, composers, visual artists, and multi-media creators — affirm a new era of cross-pollination and a profound commitment to the notion of community.
Connection Dance Works provides opportunities for artists to share knowledge and learn from each another through its PERSPECTIVE series and annual Saint John Contemporary Dance Festival. The company has established itself as an educational forum for audiences and students alike, offering workshops, artist talks and professional development for both local and visiting artists. Connection Dance Works has worked with Julia Aplin, Marie-Josée Chartier, Tedi Tafel, Meagan O’Shae, Darryl Tracy and Lesandra Dodson. The company creates new work, collaborates with multi-disciplinary artists, and presents dance on regular basis.
