As per ancient Indigenous diplomatic customs, Atlantic Ballet Canada recognizes the unceded traditional territory of the Wabanaki people in Atlantic Canada and honours the cultural inspiration of the past and present generations. As an ally, we will continue to produce works that contribute to the reconciliation process while honouring the Peace and Friendship treaties.

The Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) is the voice of the professional dance sector in Canada which advocates for a healthy, sustainable environment in which professional dance practice can grow and thrive.
The Canadian Dance Assembly exists to facilitate the dynamic exchange of information relevant to Canadian professional dance of all forms and aesthetics. It cultivates a strong national voice for Canadian professional dance and supports the development of resources for this field of artistic expression. Through conferences, workshops, and networking events we connect the dance actors from coast to coast, working towards building a cohesive and dynamic community.
