Miriam Adams, Co-Founder/Director of Dance Collection Danse (DCD), was recently appointed to the Order of Canada for her contribution to Canadian dance history. Adams and her late husband Lawrence, both former dancers of The National Ballet of Canada, founded 15 Dance Lab in the 1970s and published magazines such as SPILL and Canadian Dance News. The Adamses’ commitment to preserve Canadian dance was foreshadowed by the establishment of Visus Foundation in 1974, to videotape dance in Canada. They created DCD, Canada’s national dance archives and publishing house, in 1986.
