DUSK DANCES SIXTEENTH SEASON!

 

In 2010, with the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Dusk Dances’ licensing initiative began its pilot phase, allowing communities around the Province to license Dusk Dances, and learn how to produce the event in their community. As our festival grows, we strive to find new ways to push the boundaries of the art form, to challenge choreographers artistically, and to make the event more visible and more popular.
