Kinetic is a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation, development and presentation of contemporary dance. Based in Kjipuktuk/Halifax, we support professional dance artists by providing workshops, classes, artistic residencies, a seasonal program of finished and unfinished works, and more. We aim to foster a supportive, responsive and flexible environment that allows dance artists at all levels to develop to their full artistic potential.
Kinetic is committed to building and nurturing spaces where artists can explore, create and grow with equity, justice, and respect. We recognize the inequities in our society that result in many artists being vulnerable to abuse, harassment and discrimination. We reject these abuses of power, and commit to work towards creating safer spaces for everyone. We envision an environment in which all artists can create with the freedom and respect we all deserve.
Kinetic is committed to programming and supporting artists who represent a diversity of gender identities, races, sexual orientations, physical or mental abilities, and ethnicities.
