Valérie Plante

Finally, the time has come for the 20th Festival Quartiers Danses. I invite Montrealers to discover a rich and avant-garde contemporary dance program.

This festival enriches Montréal’s cultural offering. The talent of dance creators from both here and around the world will shine in many venues, but also in off-site locations. In the wake of the pandemic, what a joy it is to reconnect with the living arts in our venues and public spaces, places that are loved by the public!

The city of Montréal shares with the Festival Quartiers Danses the desire to make culture more accessible to all.

For 20 years, we have been proud to enjoy this festival, which highlights our greatest choreographers and dancers. It is an opportunity for the population to enjoy important and high quality works.

I would like to congratulate the organizers and the artists for their work and their passion! Your art allows Montréal to position itself as a major pillar of dance and the performing arts.
