Join us! CHAMPIONESS by SaMel Tanz

Join us for the premiere of SaMel Tanz‘s CHAMPIONESS!

CHAMPIONESS is an electrifying performance that combines boxing and contemporary, street, and Latin dance to explore notions of identity and mental health. Choreographers Sam Schleese and Mel Hart reflect on the power of solidarity amongst women as they face fears and navigate life-changing experiences, challenging society’s perceptions of winners and losers. 

Performances: November 16 – 18, 2023 at 8 pm at Harbourfront Centre Theatre

Tickets: Purchase now online or call (416) 973-4000

CHAMPIONESS is presented by DanceWorks as part of its 2023/24 Season. Stay posted for artists interviews and behind the scenes sneak peeks! Connect with DanceWorks at or on our Instagram.

    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.
