NDAC in the Community

Margaret Stegman

Coordinator, Canada 150 Wearable Art Show

NDAC is wonderful at helping neophytes with arts' grants applications - energetic, focused, skilled, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and lots of fun besides.

Melody Diachun

Musician/Program Coordinator: Selkirk College Contemporary Music Program

Nelson is Canada’s Arts & Counterculture mecca, attracting extraordinary artists, artisans, dancers, and musicians from far and wide. Thanks to the NDAC for giving Arts experiences to our community

Slava Doval

Founder of DanceFusion, Dance Representative for the Cultural Development Committee for the City of Nelson

In so many ways I thought the Dance Educators Showcase was a success, not only as a wonderful evening of talent and entertainment, but also a community engagement event.
