Join the National Vote for dance campaign!

Voting for dance in Canada demonstrates that you agree with the principles highlighted in the Dance Manifesto, that you recognize the importance of dance in the lives of Canadians. You may vote for the social cohesion that dance brings, for its community engagement, how it reaches youth or seniors, its inclusiveness, how it embraces healthy living, or how it provides jobs and employment. When you vote for dance, you add your voice to the hundreds of individuals in Canada that want us to speak on their behalf. Dancers have the shortest careers, wages are the lowest, and many dance companies /individual dancers suffer extreme financial fragility. When it comes to convincing public leaders about the necessity of dance in our Canadian culture, the importance of reinforcing dance in education, subsidizing health insurance programs, or access to Touring funding, CDA needs a critical mass of people raising their voice…don’t wait : VOTE NOW, and join the largest dance force whose goal is to move into the spotlight and change the status of dance in Canada!

Place your vote here and help to show the world that Canada is a DANCE NATION!

Support the work of CDA and it's "I love dance/J'aime la danse" campaign that promotes the values, importance and contributions dance adds to our lives and culture. Please visit the Canadian Dance Assembly official website for more information on our services: www.cda-acd.ca

      Im a dancer and teacher, who cannot emphasis enough how important dancing has been in my life as a form of therapy and in lives of others. The importance of movement is already a known fact but dancing due to its fluidity allows individuals to express their individuality in a joyful, healthy way. Due to my strong belief in dance and supporting it by living it, unfortunately have to live in poverty due to lack of support from the government. Pls support dance and humanity by supporting those that have been loyal to it.

      La danse est l'art humain par excellence pour établir le continuum entre le corps et l'esprit, le monde réel et le monde idéal.
