ATTENTION ALL HAMILTON DANCE ARTISTS:

On June 8, HCA Dance Theatre hosted a symposium and local artist showcase (in partnership with Hamilton Arts Council and as part of Hamilton Arts Week) -  in support of building a thriving Hamilton dance scene.

This first Together in Dance assembly was a great success. 

Read blog post here: http://hcadancetheatre.com/together-in-dance-a-singular-success/

On the heels of the successful Hamilton Dusk Dances 2018 and in pursuit of advancing the discussions of how we can work together to build community,  visibility and access to dance in Hamilton, we will hold a continuation meeting on: 

August 30  from 12-2pm at the Cotton Factory. 

Please RSVP to erica@hcarts.ca by August 15, 2018 

Please see the meeting agenda below, and come prepared with thoughts/answers/details on the agenda items. We would like this meeting to inform next steps for HCA Dance Theatre to apply for grants in support of building infrastructure and advancement of programming and scheduling.

Please forward this information to any dancers/choreographers/dance producers you think should be involved in these discussions and developments.

We look forward to seeing you on August 30th, 2018 at The Cotton Factory!
