Dance is ever-evolving. So are we
Since its launch in 1976 as the regional arm of the Dance In Canada Association (DICA)*, our membership-based association has grown into a multi-faceted, dynamic cross-section of all areas of the dance sector. Our seven networks across Ontario – Halton (HDN), Dufferin (DDN), London (LDA), Windsor (WDN), Sudbury (SDN), Ottawa (ODN), and The Soo/Algoma (S/ADN) – proudly represent an extraordinary scope of organizations and individuals. Advocate for our community. Connect talent and experts with opportunities and resources. Provide training, advice and industry information to further professional careers and nurture new ones. Create exceptional programming. And interact, every day, with the public to promote our members’ services and events.
We’re a constant, active, thriving force for Ontario’s vibrant dance community
Dance Ontario is made up of internationally renowned professional companies, talent, studios, local dance clubs, festivals, and agents. Independent dancers, choreographers and teachers. Over 150 schools. Writers and administrators and technicians and so, so many others who share our passion for the art and impact of dance.
