On May 11, 2022, in Place des Arts’ Salon Urbain, Danse Danse and its guests enthusiastically welcomed the return of live performance. In a convivial atmosphere, with the theme Souffle (“breath”), the evening was a nod to renewal, to sweetness, to life. Nearly 300 people from all walks of life, including the business and arts communities, joined the Danse Danse team to raise a glass in celebration of contemporary dance. The evening was also an opportunity for guests to attend Côté Danse’s performance of Crypto, choreographed by Canadian star dancer Guillaume Côté.

The fundraising event achieved its objectives. The money raised will be allocated to Danse Danse’s artistic programming (which will be even more diverse and of exceptional quality) and programs for young people from sensitive backgrounds, and will help provide direct support to artists.

The honorary chair of the event was Sophie Lussier, Vice-President and Head of Legal Affairs, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.

Danse Danse warmly thanks her and all the members of the Honorary Committee.

Thank you to our donors and partners!
