Saint John Contemporary Dance Festival is produced by Connection Dance Works. We are a non-profit professional contemporary dance company in Saint John, New Brunswick. The company creates and presents work and provides opportunities for artists to share knowledge and learn from each other through the PERSPECTIVE series, the New Music, New Dance Residency, and our annual Saint John Contemporary Dance Festival. 

We also support opportunities for adults to dance year-round:

Connection Dance Works acknowledges that it carries out its work on the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik, Mi’kmaq and Peskotomuhkati peoples. We, the staff and members of the board, pay respect to the elders, past and present, and descendants of this land. We honour the knowledge keepers and seek their guidance as we strive to develop closer relationships with the Indigenous people of New Brunswick.
