Dusk Dances is an outdoor dance festival that brings high quality contemporary and traditional dance to public parks. As dusk descends, a theatrical host leads the audience – which invariably includes children, dog walkers and local residents – to eclectic dance pieces that unfold in different areas of the park.

Choreographers from various backgrounds are invited to perform a ten-minute piece inspired by the park’s natural environment. Audiences are invited on a pay-what-you-can basis to an innovative site-specific festival, which is not only an artistic event but a social and cultural one as well.

As producers, our mandate is to bring dance to the community by making it accessible:
physically – our venue is a public space
financially – admission is pay what you can
artistically – our programming is diverse, for all tastes and ages

Our mandate as presenters is to give choreographers a unique opportunity to showcase their work in a non-traditional dance venue, in front of a large and mostly new audience.

Dusk Dances is a member of the Candance network and the Canadian Dance Assembly.
