Join us online
this season from the comfort of your own home.


DanceWorks supports the growth/development of artists/dance artistry through the medium of performance. Dedicated to creating a vital and vibrant dance presenting practice, DanceWorks embraces dances that appeal to a wide range of audiences.

The Dance Curator makes all artistic selections, programming high quality work emerging from different traditions, by artists who are making a significant contribution to the discipline.

1. Moving Online: Launched in the fall of 2020, the series shares the creativity and inspiration of dance artists working in the digital realm. The series includes short video stories, interviews, as well as pieces choreographed for the digital stage.

2. Mainstage Series: presents local and touring artists/companies throughout the season.

3. CoWorks Series: supports self-presenting artists and companies with marketing and production services. We are not accepting new applications, as the program is currently under review.

Artists are encouraged to apply for Mainstage & Moving Online presentations. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis. Please send inquiries to:



Donors are the heart of our season.

We acknowledge the Toronto/Tkaronto as One Dish One Spoon Indigenous territory. We honour the ancestral caretakers of this land: the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat and most recently the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who have a Treaty relationship with Canada. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in their community, on this territory. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future.
