The Dance Centre’s Artist-in-Residence program provides studio space and technical and administrative support to enable choreographers to work with various artists and audiences, through creation, teaching, outreach activities and performances. Technical residencies offer production support to artists preparing for full theatre presentations.

Our DanceLab program supports research and collaboration between dance artists and other art disciplines. It provides fully subsidized studio space at Scotiabank Dance Centre to the participating artists for a period of 2 weeks, enabling the artists to research how cross-art form collaboration can enhance their artistic growth and the development of new work. Upon completion of the process, the artists open up the process to the public through an informal studio presentation.
