A Broad Reach

By Holly Harris

In just five short years, the now fifteen-year-old NAfro Dance Productions has made another leap in its own evolution as Western Canada’s African contemporary dance company. The second international Moving Inspirations Dance Festival once again brought the world to Winnipeg, while also proudly celebrating local dance artists who call the Prairie province home.

New Year, New Awakening

Soulful Messiah’s fifteenth year By Collette Murray

Ballet Creole opens the holidays by intersecting the Toronto theatre community and the NextSteps contemporary dance series with its annual seasonal ritual – Soulful Messiah. The performance is Artistic Director and Founder Patrick Parson’s choreographic concept of navigating different emotional stages of life and spirituality and how one copes through its peaks and valleys.
