In 1986, responding to developing federal and provincial arts policies, a small group of Ontario-based dance artists saw the need for a professional association that could establish standards for payment and working conditions and that would organize individual dance artists into one united voice. With the support of the Dance Ontario Association, Marie-Josée Chartier, Maxine Heppner, Patricia Fraser and others, the foundation was laid for what is now the Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists - East Chapter.
