History

The Canadian Association of Professional Dance Organizations (CAPDO) is the only national service organization for dance in Canada. Established in 1978 and incorporated in 1981, CAPDO helps to serve the interests of dancers and dance organizations across Canada regardless of their stage of development and experience. It represents the collective interests of its members in seeking out public support for its initiative to expand opportunities for professional development and creativity within the discipline. Its members are the major professional dance companies and institutions in Canada with proven records of professional achievement and artistic merit. In 1990, CAPDO undertook a formal review of its structure, objectives and administration with the primary purpose of expanding its membership and better representing the needs of a broader spectrum of the dance community. The membership today consists of dance companies, training and re-training institutions and other agencies serving the professional dance community.
