On the advice of the Vice-President and Provost of the University of Toronto, Hart House Theatre in concert with the student executive of The Festival of Dance are cancelling the 2020 performances.
Over 200 dancers now perform each year during the Festival, representing a wide array of dance genres including Jazz, Ballet, Ballroom, Modern, Hip Hop, Middle Eastern and Bollywood. Created 25 years ago as an avenue to provide dance groups on campus the opportunity to perform on stage for an audience, the Festival of Dance has now grown into a celebration of the diversity and prosperity of the U of T dance community. Past events have included over 60 different dance pieces, well over 200 performers and an impressive variety of dance forms including jazz, ballet, ballroom, modern, contact improv, hip-hop, musical theatre, Irish, Latin, and Egyptian belly dancing, just to name a few. With such an abundance of dance groups associated with U of T, participation in the festival is a great opportunity for dance groups to interact, collaborate and promote their own work and ventures.
