Canadian Dance Repertory

Directors: Nenagh Leigh and Mary Jane Warner

Dedicated to inspired creation and compelling performance

Our mission is to share our Canadian dance classics and new creations with our established and newly developing audiences and to enrich the dance journeys of all our artists and audience members. We are committed to the development of our modern dance art form, a genre that has already sourced much of our current practice in Canada, and carries within its methodologies and sensibilities many avenues for dance development and performance innovation.
