In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, SAMPRADAYA DANCE CREATIONS is organizing a three-day dance 
symposium in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada from July 24-26, 2015. 
This landmark project will focus on the emergence of new and unique ways of imagining the futures of 
new generation artists working in South Asian dance across Canada towards self-directed careers as they 
plan their place in the mainstream dance milieu. 
This three-day event will include the following:
• panel sessions and workshops
• a showcase featuring emerging and mid-career artists
• a performance by international soloist- Malavika Sarukkai
• dance film screenings
Beyond Boundaries: Imagining New Futures For South Asian Dance in Canada will address the needs and 
challenges of the South Asian dance ecology, understood in its wider context of ‘the artist in society’ and 
how it relates its multiple stakeholders. It will provide voice for practitioners who have remained off the 
radar of ‘mainstream dance’ and have faced systemic barriers in accessing support and opportunities. Our 
focus will be directed towards new generation and emerging professional artists and provide a forum for 
networking, professional development and engaging with their communities.
