Mile Zero Dance would like to acknowledge the treaty relationship of friendship and kinship with the indigenous peoples who gathered here for thousands of years: Cree, Nakota, Blackfoot, Dene, Saulteaux, and Metis, and all Indigenous people continuing to live here today. We wish to uphold tatawaw which in Cree means “welcome, there is room”, through creating a welcoming space for all – from those that traditionally gathered to those that have just arrived.
Mile Zero Dance Society (MZD) is a contemporary dance company that creates and produces original dynamic interdisciplinary works focusing on performance, collaboration, community outreach, and training.
By being very in-tune with our artistic peers, neighbourhood, and the various stakeholders in our midst, we have discovered that by combining dance and its process with other artistic and cultural forms not only increases and enriches collaborations and knowledge between artists, but it also gives us, over time, and informed and interested audience.
MZD provides mentorship, training, and peer support to a network of artists, as well as to kids in schools, and in agencies within our community.
