Season Highlights, to date!
While nothing can ever replace the experience of live performances, due to Covid-19, artists and audiences can no longer gather at this time. We look forward to the day when we can welcome audiences, visitors, and renters back to our space.

Until then, we gather online and we do our best to be nimble and maintain commitments to artists and arts workers. Although the season is not unfolding as we had originally planned, we would like to share some of our season highlights, to date.

WCD’s 20/21 season began with an outdoor and distanced video project featuring companies from across Canada and performances by WCD dancers, Carol-Ann Bohrn, Warren McClelland, Shawn Maclaine and Jolene Bailie. 

Our first live event during Covid-19! 20/21 Season Launch featuring solo performances by Carol-Ann Bohrn and Shawn Maclaine.
