Prairie Dance Circuit
The Prairie Dance Circuit (PDC) creates a forum for the presentation, development, mentorship and exchange of prairie dance artists and audiences. The vision for PDC was created with enthusiasm and realized by Brent Lott, Nicole Mion, Davida Monk, Robin Poitras, and Brian Webb, who are dedicated dance artists and the artistic directors of the participating professional dance organizations.
This inaugural four-city tour year features choreographers Jason Stroh (Calgary), Andrew Milne (Winnipeg), Hilary Maxwell (Calgary), and Raena Waddell (Edmonton). Maxwell replaces Joelle Arnusch & Robert Regala (Regina) who unfortunately are unable to appear.
In the Spring of 2010, Dancers’ Studio West (DSW) and New Dance Horizons hosted a preview event which included a mentorship exchange and mini-tour. PDC brings some of the best and brightest creative voices from the west. Here you have it – from the prairies. Smart, funny, technologically savvy and provocative.
