 “Remembering Rachel Browne, C.M.”  

JANUARY 18 – 20/ 8PM

An exciting evening of Signature Works Choreographed by Rachel Browne directed by Stephanie Ballard. 

“Browne was considered the matriarch of Canadian contemporary dance. She took great pride in the fact that WCD, which she established in 1964, is the oldest modern dance company in Canada. Through the School of Contemporary Dancers, she helped train, nurture and inspire countless choreographers and dancers. Her role as a pioneer in the development of modern dance in Canada is monumental.” Paula Citron, 2012, The Globe and Mail

The guest artists: Odette Heyn, Paula Blair, Kathleen Hiley, Robyn Thomson Kacki

WCD’s commitment to developing young artists continues. Recent graduates and graduating dancers of The Professional Program of The School of Contemporary Dancers get a jump start to their careers as professional dancers with this exciting WCD initiative.
