This project makes use of the Encyclopedia of Theatre Dance in Canada/Encyclopédie de la Danse Théâtrale au Canada, which provides the students with a cross section of the history of theatre dance in Canada, dating from 1850 to the present. "Theatre dance" is the phrase used to describe dance that is performed by professional dancers in a theatrical setting, for example, on a stage. The Encyclopedia offers over 250 entries on dancers, choreographers, companies, significant choreographic works, and a list of music compositions created for dance. This bilingual book is the only Canadian dance reference book of its kind.
