FadaDance Troupe formed in 2004 and incorporated as a non-profit contemporary dance company in 2009. Principal dancers Heather Cameron, Fran Gilboy, and Misty Wensel drive the artistic mandate of the company: to challenge the boundaries of contemporary dance on the prairies. This mandate is guided by an exploration of the unexpected and a commitment to collaboration within and outside of the organization. By presenting contemporary dance in alternative spaces and unconventional work in traditional performance venues, FadaDance Troupe is making dance accessible to a broad audience. This relationship to the audience exists in work that both invites and involves the viewer, breaking down barriers and conjuring excitement about the discipline. In this way, FadaDance Troupe not only cultivates an appreciation of the art form, they also build an enthusiastic and engaged community.

FadaDance Youth Company

In addition to operating as a professional dance company, FadaDance Troupe is dedicated to training the next generation of contemporary dancers through their work with the FadaDance Youth Company. FadaDance has created an environment where the differences and diversity of each dancer is valued and appreciated. By continuing to construct programming that successfully includes a balance of improvisation, inquiry and dance technique, a stable and nurturing experience is created for the young dancer.

Currently, The FadaDance Youth Company consists of 23 young people ranging in age from 13 to 18.  Students fully participate in all aspects of dance including creating their own choreographies.
