The program supports Ontario-based multi-disciplinary arts presenters only in regions outside of Toronto to get more people engaged, interested and invested in dance. It aims to increase the range and diversity of dance available to Ontario communities in these regions. The program offers the public opportunities to participate in dance from dance classes and workshops to community-engaged dance projects to the presentation of dance by Ontario-based professional dance artists and dance companies.
