Committed to Facilitating the Creation of Dance

Through our Artists in Residence program, The Landing Dance Centre provides aspiring and professional artists with the tools, resources and studio space needed to turn creative ideas into reality.

Twice a year, The Landing Dance Centre accepts applications from local artists and provides them with the time, space and community that will enable them to realize their respective visions.

Those who have become involved in The Landing Dance Centre community can attest that the free flow of ideas between dancing professionals is vital for expanding both the capabilities of our dancers and the artistic boundaries of dance itself.
