Our archival holdings represent the work of dance artists, companies and events related to theatrical dance dating back to the nineteenth century. These include choreographic notes, moving images, programs, oral histories, sets, props, costumes, personal correspondence, house programs and other artifacts illustrating a dynamic and rich Canadian theatrical dance legacy. These exhibitions expand on DCD's "museum without walls" concept and bring the collection to a wider audience.
