Withrow Park, our flagship event, has been the heart of Dusk Dances for 12 years, premiering bold and delightful dance works in Toronto’s Riverdale community.

Hosted by Ryan Egan, with a musical performance by Moonshiner’s Daughter.


This summer’s program features exciting choreography from:

Lua Shayenne and Roshanak Jaberi, with Bao – a traditional West African coming of age dance featuring dancers and drummers in a fusion of rhythmic movement and sound. Watch Video

The Contingency Plan with Strathcona High, Class of ’56 – a quirky and comedic take on 3 teenage girls, clad in perfect pastel dresses, arriving at their high school prom. Watch Video

Michael Caldwell with The Horologium - a fantastical journey into the topsy-turvy world of a hapless caretaker, 4 dancers, and a nine-foot tall accordion-playing matriarch. Watch Video

Throwdown Collective (Zhenya Cerneacov, Mairéad Filgate, Brodie Stevenson), with BoxSet – a fast-paced and acrobatic dance atop 4 wooden boxes. Watch Video

Karen Kaeja, with Eugene Walks with Grace — a poignant duet exploring the charms and challenges of one ‘extraordinarily ordinary’ couple. Watch Video
