Join our Board

The Dusk Dances Board of Directors, based in Toronto, is a fiduciary and advisory body. The Board approves developments in the growth of the Dusk Dances concept as well as providing the checks and balances for the financial operations of the organization. We have made great efforts to diversify our revenue as Dusk Dances continues to grow, and since 2012, the Board has taken a lead role in developing new fundraising strategies.

"I joined the Board after being on staff as Production Manager for 5 seasons. The show really helped me to build my experience and challenged me in many ways. When I decided to take a break from theatre I knew I didn't want to lose my connection to the event or the people so I asked to join the Board. Now I have a whole new perspective on how Dusk Dances is brought to life! Every person on the Board has a desire to see this event succeed because we all believe in its ability to connect to the community. It is truly a one-of-a-kind event."

"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."
