Le Prix DÉCOUVERTE DE LA DANSE

The Prix DÉCOUVERTE DE LA DANSE is presented by Agora de la danse and Tangente. It comes with a prize of $5,000 and will be awarded to an exemplary emerging artist. This new award pays tribute to a Quebec choreographer, dancer or a collaborator (in lighting, sound, set design, etc.) who stands out as a revelation within the dance milieu.

The winner is selected by the jury of the PRIX DE LA DANSE DE MONTRÉAL. The prize includes a one-week creation residency, as well as invitations to the premieres of works presented in the upcoming season at the Wilder Building by Agora de la danse and Tangente.
