Welcome to NextSteps

For over 40 years, Harbourfront Centre has been a leader in promoting, cultivating and defining dance in Canada. Audiences return year after year to see groundbreaking performances from an incredible selection of Canadian artists. Central to our year-round programming, NextSteps continues to expand and define what is possible with the combination of choreography, music and the dynamism of the human body in motion.

This season, we feature more than 20 dance companies, both emerging and established, at different stages of development. New to the mix, we are introducing contemporary dance from abroad, welcoming Navdhara India Dance Theatre from Mumbai. As in seasons past, many of these productions are world premieres that will go on to tour both nationally and internationally. We are proud to host these unique performances and put Canadian dance on the international map.
