What is a "professional artist"? 

CADA/East currently recognizes a professional artist as someone who fulfills one or more of the following criteria: 

  • Has specialized training in the dance field (not necessarily in academic institutions),
  • Is recognized as such by peers (artists working in the same artistic tradition), 
  • Has a history of public presentation or publication, 
  • Spends a significant amount of time practicing their art, and seeks payment for their work.

All CADA/East members must be a Canadian Citizen, Permanent Resident or be legally allowed to work in Canada. 

When applying for a CADA/East membership, a recent bio or resume describing your latest dance projects and/or training is required for approval. 

If you have further questions about membership criteria, or are unsure if you qualify, please contact Valerie at
