Toronto, ON –  It is with great pleasure that the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) announces Nathalie Fave as the new Executive Director.  “The CDA is thrilled to welcome Nathalie Fave to the position of Executive Director.  As an artist and social advocate she brings to the role a potent world view that is passionate, inclusive and forward thinking. Nathalie’s multi-faceted experience and exemplary leadership skills will serve Canada’s dance community in all its diversity”, says Board President  Michael Trent.

French born in Paris, Nathalie’s passion for arts and culture resulted in publishing numerous works in literature and poetry, and founding a cultural space in Senegal which housed fashion shows, an art gallery and a jazz club.  While in Senegal she also established a communications corporation providing consultations to the Ministry of Culture.  After living in Africa for 18 years she came to Canada in 2006 and has worked in management positions in the community development and social sector.
