" La Belle Danse Baroque Dance Company was founded in 1996 under the artistic direction of choreographer and dancer Daniel Gariépy. The company is devoted to bringing to life the beauty of baroque dance.
Using original 18th century sources as our starting point, we also create unique, innovative works that honour the spirit and traditions of the past while building bridges to new audiences today. Our performances have been hailed by the critics as: "stylistically flawless and lovely to behold."
"The eight dancers of La Belle Danse were perfectly in tune with the period style, and enhanced and illustrated the emotions of the music."
Combining the ethos of baroque dance with our own contemporary creativity, we seek to foster an understanding and appreciation of this unique art form. We strive to create and perform works that are accessible, enlightening and inspiring. " Visit website for more information. (ed.)
