Mission & Vision

Mocean Dance’s mission is to create a sustainable, innovative contemporary dance company based in Nova Scotia. This company will offer Nova Scotia dance artists employment in their home province, and the opportunity to work with exceptional local, national and international choreographers in collaborative new creation that integrates dance with other art forms. The company will create technically and emotionally rich dance that contributes to the growth of Canadian dance from the perspective of our region and artists. The company will communicate and share its work with audiences through performances both at home and on tour, and will maintain its strong commitment to community outreach, development, and youth education through residency and school programs.

We envision an internationally renowned, contemporary dance company that serves audiences and artists around the world, successfully built by Nova Scotia dancers and their community supporters.
