Supporting Canadian Choreographers and the Dance Community
CreativAction is a new initiative to share The National Ballet of Canada’s resources, develop Canadian choreographic talent and support the dance community in Toronto. Created by Artistic Director Emerita Karen Kain and curated by Choreographic Associate Robert Binet, CreativAction has three core activities:
The Choreographic Workshop is a platform that provides National Ballet dancers and independent choreographers the opportunity to create works in collaboration with the company’s artists, music and production staff, within the National Ballet’s facilities.
The National Ballet will provide 1,200 hours of free studio space each season at The Walter Carsen Centre, free of charge, to independent choreographers for one to two-week periods. This programme its currently suspended due to COVID-19 and we look forward to welcoming you into our studios when it is safe to do so.
Each season, the National Ballet will commission choreographers to create three new small scale, flexible and innovative dance works that can be presented in a wide variety of contexts.
