Corps Bara Dance Theatre presents Vital, featuring our professional company and the debut performance of CBII, 

Corps Bara's new training company.

CBII is dedicated to furthering the education and artistic growth of Calgary's most dedicated young contemporary dance artists and we're excited to welcome our first cohort to the stage

Six choreographers explore themes of exhilaration, courage, pain and curiosity, inviting audience members to consider the extremes of human experience through the visceral imagination of the dancing body.

What we do

Corps Bara's repertoire is designed to be performed in a wide range of venues. From short pieces great for fundraisers, community events or church services, to full-length theatrical performances, Corps Bara is driven by the belief that art has the power to change lives and needs to be available to all people. 

Contemporary in style, Corps Bara merges artistry and physicality through the creation of work that explores meaningful questions at the intersection of our spiritual and earthly journeys.

We have a rich history of collaboration with other artists and community groups. Corps Bara has performed or collaborated with artists and arts organizations such as Cum Vino Cantus Choir, EnChor Chamber Choir, Luminous Voices, Dayna Ellen Visual Art, Alyssa Durnie Opera, Ambrose Orchestra, CORE Choir, Two Late to the Party and Fire Exit Theatre. We have also performed at local charity benefit concerts, partnering with organizations such as the Mustard Seed and Servants Anonymous.
