Création Danse 2014

On December 13th and 14th 2014, The DansEncorps Productions Inc. are proud to present the show "Création Danse", that features young performers and emerging choreographers during an extraordinary evening of dance.
"Création Danse" is an annual event that provides an opportunity to create new choreography as well as the ability to produce this work on stage. This year, a dozen original choreographies will be offered to the public. These young emerging artists have been working to create new raw material since September. Under the guidance of members of the Company, they have gained knowledge and experience that enabled them to develop their talent as choreographers and performers.
Do not miss this unique opportunity to see new works of different styles that will be presented in a professional context!

The shows will take place in the 3rd floor theater of the Aberdeen Cultural Centre on Saturday, December 13th at 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 14th at 2 p.m.

35 young dancers chosen for the pre-professional program!

Following the 2014 Summer Dance Intensive in August, 35 young dancers stood out at the auditions for DansEncorps' pre-professional program. The program's objective is to acquire the skills needed in order to access professional level training upon high school graduation. Stage experience, leadership, work ethic and discipline are among the focal points of our artistic approach. Performances offered by these young dancers are a way to promote the art of dance in the community while putting the spot light on their artistic talents.

Congratulations to members of the three programs!
