Remembering Rachel Browne, C.M.
“A Celebration” Signature Works Choreographed by Rachel Browne Directed by Stephanie Ballard
“Browne was considered the matriarch of Canadian contemporary dance. She took great pride in the fact that WCD, which she established in 1964, is the oldest modern dance company in Canada. Through the School of Contemporary Dancers, she helped train, nurture and inspire countless choreographers and dancers. Her role as a pioneer in the development of modern dance in Canada is monumental.” Paula Citron, 2012, The Globe and Mail.
