For 35 years, Live Art has been striving to share the world’s very best in contemporary dance with the Maritimes! This year, we are celebrating 36 years of dance with the world’s most daring local, national, and international artists. And because of patrons like you, Atlantic Canada is officially a destination for these amazing choreographers, performers, and innovators. Your continued support is essential in keeping our momentum alive!

Over the years, we’ve grown from presenting 4 shows a year to a season that encompasses up to 7 productions! In addition to this, we’ve created scholarships to assist emerging dancers and choreographers, implemented residencies and masterclasses, commissioned new works, created audience outreach activities like dance-offs and parties, and produced three editions of the Atlantic New Dance Festival.

And we couldn’t doit without your overwhelming generosity!

Did you know that the average cost of a Live Art show is nearly $30 000, and that only 10% of that cost is covered by ticket sales? That means that 90% of our revenue is dependent on sponsorships, public investment, and the support of individual donors like you!

Our continued success depends on your support. Whether you’re a subscriber or ticket purchaser, fundraiser attendee, donor, volunteer, advertiser or sponsor, each contribution is vital to us and so greatly appreciated. On behalf of Live Art Dance and the entire arts community, we’d like to thank you for your ongoing contribution to the HRM’s vibrant and healthy cultural landscape!
