International Dance Week is a free week-long online showcase highlighting the cultural diversity and collaborations of different dance artists in short daily live streams from April 24th through to April 30th.

The International Dance Week ONLINE event includes a wide variety of top Canadian BIPOC artists and strives to promote cross-collaboration between cultures. Participating artists will present a new collaborative work via live stream performance each evening at 7pm Saskatchewan time. The featured works are inspired by both the diversity of dance and the relationship built between the two collaborating artists during the creation period.
