In 2020, through the Canada Arts Council and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec’s emergency funds and in partnership with the MAI, Montréal, arts interculturels, the Maison de la culture du Plateau-Mont-Royal, Par B.L.eux and Studio 303, Danse-Cité offered research and creation residencies to seven dance artists.

Research and creation spaces are the heart and soul of an artist’s practice and integral to its sustainability. Danse-Cité is working to establish these residencies periods as an ongoing activity of the organization to foster the development of dance and choreographic practice as an expanding artistic discipline.
