DANCELAB

SUPPORTING RESEARCH AND COLLABORATION BETWEEN DANCE AND OTHER DISCIPLINES

DanceLab provides up to 40 hours of fully-subsidized studio space at Scotiabank Dance Centre to enable 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 share their research with the public through an informal studio showing.
