Panel Discussion: The Future of Contemporary Dance

The 2018 Guelph Dance Festival hosted a panel discussion on the Future of Contemporary Dance. As we celebrated our 20th annual festival, we were looking to our past to recognize our accomplishments and looking to the future to set the next steps.

The Guelph Dance Festival would like to play a role in building relationships and providing a platform for women, youth, people of colour and Indigenous dance artists to tell their stories and speak their truths. 

Panelists include  Sandra Laronde from Red Sky Peformance, Katie Ewald, local dancer/choreographer, Suzette Sherman, local dancer/choreographer, Emily Law and Ashley Perez from Mix Mix Dance Collective, Sharon B. Moore, Toronto based multidisciplinary dancer and choreographer and mentor of the Guelph Dance Breaking Ground Mentorship Program and Hope Sarah Gumahad and Sydney Runions from Canadian COntemporary Dance Theatre.

If you missed the discussion you can listen to recording broadcasted by CFRU on June 14, 2018 by accessing PART 1 & PART 2 of their archives.
