Caithream Celtic Dance Fusion is a dance company based in Ottawa, which combines the traditions of highland dancing with a fusion of modern dance styles. It was was founded in 2002, by Ottawa dancers Andrée Charlebois and Jenn Macquarrie.

The Company’s goal is to lead a revolution in the dance world by defying conventional categorisations. Through the fusing of styles such as highland, jazz, contemporary dance, and traditional dances of many cultures, we are creating a new form of dance that is uniquely Canadian; we want to express both our contemporary position as multicultural Canadians in a global community, as well as our roots as immigrants.

Through our choreography, we hope to communicate both the strength in sharing a common background and the beauty of diversity.
