"I love the idea of bringing dance to the public, which Dusk Dances does so beautifully with its magical evenings in the park. It's very rewarding to watch toddlers, grannies and hipsters all enjoying the music and the movement. I live near Withrow Park, the "home park" of Dusk Dances, and, as a board member, am proud to support this friendly and artistic event that draws people from across the city."

Organizations like Dusk Dances contribute to the health of our communities and make them wonderful places to live."

"Before I began my career as a performing arts administrator, I remember attending a Dusk Dances performance one summer's eve. I remember sitting in the grass, chatting with other attendees, and getting swept up in the magic of the artists dancing into the twilight. It gives me such pleasure to return to this organisation to support Sylvie's vision. I believe that the arts hold such a vital place in our communities and love that Dusk Dances is bringing communities together to share high quality contemporary and traditional dance in public parks."

"After spending three seasons on the production team, I have incredible admiration for Dusk Dances as an arts presenter, an innovator within the Canadian dance milieu, and as a community catalyst. Every year, high quality performances collide with an accessible production model to create a truly magical event. The diversity of audience members, volunteers, and artists involved make me so proud to support this festival—a celebration of art and community."
