Orchesis Dance Society

Orchesis Dance Society is a registered Alberta Society, created specifically for and dedicated to supporting Orchesis Dance Program (ODP) and the dance community in Edmonton.

What we do

  • Orchesis Dance Society raises funds to assist and enable ODP to
    • invite guest teachers and choreographers to Edmonton
    • offset the costs of ODP's annual production, Dance Motif
    • Resurrected Motifs - small grants that support previous Dance Motif choreographers to reset or continue to build on their dance choreography

Orchesis Dance Society is dedicated to

  • building and supporting the dance community in Edmonton by supporting the training and choreographic endeavors of non-professional dance artists
  • encouraging dialogue and collaboration between the professional and non-professional dance community in Edmonton

How being a member helps

By joining the society, your membership enables Orchesis Dance Society to

  • hire experienced dance professionals to teach master classes
  • assist with purchasing costumes for Dance Motif
  • help support the pursuit of opportunities for Orchesis choreographers to showcase their work beyond Dance Motif

We warmly welcome and encourage you, as an Orchesis alumnus/a, to support us.
