Sharing art, connecting people …

We contribute to the well-being and vibrancy of our community by creating unique and valuable platforms for artistic exchange, public engagement, and dance education.

Our organizational activities include outreach and exchange  – central tenants of our practice. We are aware of the social, physical and economic barriers preventing audiences from participating in the arts, specifically dance. We are also aware of the tendency of contemporary dance practice to be esoteric and intellectually exclusive. Through TOES FOR DANCE, we hope to engage communities in overcoming these obstacles. We wish to draw from our unique perspective and expose the diversity of contemporary dance to new audiences through performances, workshops and other events; further, we hope to stimulate young audiences, forging future ambassadors for the arts.

TOES FOR DANCE creates opportunities for shared experiences in order to foster a community that is open to continuous learning.

We do this by:

  • Communicating openly and thoughtfully while modeling respectful and reciprocal relationships
  • Embracing diversity and inclusiveness, allowing space for individual choice-making
  • Listening and responding to the needs of our community while balancing curatorial vision with social responsibility
