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 provides 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.

Currently, the work of the Board is supported by three committees: Board recruitment committee, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion committee and Fundraising committee.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, Hamilton

Date of Election: December 14, 2022

"I first attended Dusk Dances when I was a dance student in the late 1990’s. I was instantly captivated by the magic of experiencing dance outdoors. Years later, while in arts management, I connected with Sylvie and worked to bring the festival to Hamilton as a licensee. Dusk Dances' mission of bringing dance into the community and making it accessible resonates with me and I have seen first-hand the impact in Hamilton. I am thrilled to support this organization in its continued growth and development as a board member."

“As a dance enthusiast and a lover of the arts, Dusk Dances is one of the festivals I love most. It brings magic and movement to public spaces and allows dance to be appreciated and enjoyed by people of all ages and backgrounds. I am delighted to join the Dusk Dances board of directors and to support the vision of this brilliant and dynamic organization as it continues to inspire and innovate!”


Pamela Briz


Associate Producer, Harbourfront Centre

Date of Election: February, 2024

“Some of the most memorable dance performances I have ever seen have been at Dusk Dances and I look forward to the festival every year. As an arts producer, I believe that presenting dance in public spaces is a beautiful way to build community and reach audiences that may not get the opportunity to experience dance in traditional theatre venues. I am very excited to be joining the Board as Dusk Dances celebrates its 30th anniversary and I look forward to supporting the organization as it propels forward toward the next 30 years!”
