The work of Kinetic takes place in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral home and unceded traditional land of the Mi'kmaq people. We are grateful to be on this land, and have deep respect for those who have been its caretakers for many generations. We are committed to working to understand and live by the Treaties of Peace and Friendship which govern this land.

We also recognize the African Nova Scotian communities whose work and presence has been central to the infrastructure of the places in which we work.


Kinetic is excited to be seeking a new Artistic Director. The ideal candidate will have a passion for dance, deep knowledge of the contemporary dance community, experience in dance creation and/or producing, an understanding of the not-for-profit milieu and funding programs, the ability to work well with people both as a colleague and a mentor, a high level of motivation, and the capacity for self-direction. As needed, Kinetic is committed to supporting the right candidate to develop the capacity and skills to fulfill the responsibilities of this position.

The Open Studio Series

Kinetic Studio offers professional choreographers the opportunity to show in-progress or finished works through our Open Studio Series. Through this series, Kinetic presents curated performances of work three times a season, showcasing the pieces of approximately 15 choreographers in total. The majority of the participating artists are local, but we also include some out-of-town artists each season. Successful artists receive an honorarium, access to rehearsal space, and documentation of their work.


Through the support of the Craig Foundation, Kinetic Studio provides extra support to an artist to explore new or developing dimensions of their choreographic process. Each year the program is custom-tailored to the needs of the Explorations artist, with support generally including access to rehearsal space, a stipend, documentation, and the opportunity to show work multiple times over the season.

Artistic Residencies

Kinetic Studio offers artistic residencies to dance artists and those wishing to explore dance and movement in their artistic practices. These residencies are offered to artists whose work falls within Kinetic Studio’s mandate, and most often take the form of access to rehearsal space. Other supports can also be considered. 

Kinetic also offers a variety of classes, workshops, and other programmes that respond to the needs of our community.

Please contact the Artistic Director at for further information on any of our programs.


Get in touch with us today to learn more about our performance schedule, events, classes, workshops & residencies.
