Orographic Lift

The region surrounding the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor is notable for having the highest frequency of hail in Canada, which is caused by orographic lifting from the nearby Rocky Mountains. This micro-climate is unique and the only one of its kind across the country. Nestled within this same corridor is professional dance in Alberta, rife with creativity and entrepreneurial prowess while facing distinct challenges that set it apart from other major centres.  

Join us in the Vertigo Theatre Lobby on October 21, 2015 to reflect on our current Alberta Dance landscape and the contextual shifts in the local and provincial dance territory, with a focus on how to ensure that artists and the cultural community thrive and continue to nurture thought provoking contemporary art in Calgary, the province, and the country.

Time to meet, connect, discuss, debate, learn, inspire, and drink wine.
