A Word from the Festival Director

"Now in its 25th season, Dusk Dances is set against the natural landscape of your neighbourhood park.
Your journey is accompanied by a host who leads you to selected dance pieces located in different areas throughout the park. Featuring some of Canada’s most innovative and engaging dancers and choreographers, Dusk Dances continues to be a delight for audiences of all ages.

Sylvie Bouchard, Festival Director and Curator



Dusk Dances rarely cancels a show in advance of the start time due to inclement weather. All of our artists and volunteers are present at the park (even if it's pouring), and should the clouds part, the sun start to shine, and it's safe to perform, they are ready to go. An announcement is generally made at the park between 7:00pm and 7:30pm if the show has been cancelled. Any cancellation will be announced on Dusk Dances social media, after the announcement in the park.

A good rule of thumb to assess whether to attend a Dusk Dances performance when the weather looks bad: when it’s time for you to leave for the park, look up at the sky… if it is raining with no end in sight, or if there is a lightening, you may consider attending another Dusk Dances performance.
