Founded in 1985, the Sursaut Dance Company is dedicated to the creation, production, and dissemination of dance works for young and family audiences. Joyful, poetic and touching, the company’s productions witness to the maturity of a progressive and evolutionary artistic vision, aimed at young audiences since more than 30 years. Conscious of the intelligence, the openness, the great capacity to listen and see and the demanding nature of young audiences, the company works with seriousness, authenticity, and with the greatest respect for this audience. Presented from coast to coast in Canada as well as internationally, Sursaut’s productions inspire and charm young and old alike, everywhere they are presented.
The Sursaut Dance Company is a pioneering figure in the field of contemporary dance for young and family audiences in Canada and plays an active role in the development of professional dance outside major urban centres.
