Dance Artist in Residence 2022 | In Person

The Dance Artists in Residence program is designed specifically for dance artists to have focused time for the creation and development of new works in Banff Centre studios, with support as desired from a faculty team of professional dance dramaturgs.

This program brings a number of dance artists to the Banff campus at the same time to work on their respective projects, while enjoying opportunities for artistic connection and exchange with peers. The residency is intended for artists working in the initial creation phase of a new work, which they will develop over the course of one or two weeks in residence.
