These artists each represent a unique voice within this country’s dance ecology, and will grace the stage with dance manifestations, influenced by both their past and present journey, ranging in style’s from African to Dancehall, from Contemporary to Jazz and more.
Audiences will embark on a total dance experience reflecting and celebrating the human spirit across Canada.
