Now gearing up for its twentieth edition, CDF offers an important accounting of the state of the art of dance across the country. With regular “off-year” events and a full-on festival every other year, the festival is dedicated to growing audiences in the Ottawa region and providing a meeting site for dance artists across regional, generational, cultural and disciplinary lines.
