On the Ground

Choose Your Own Adventure

By Elise Tigges

During a week-long festival at Toronto’s Harbourfront, an exciting schedule brought unique performances from around the world. Through dance, music, theatre and puppetry, children were exposed to stories and cultures, from right here at home to as far away as Australia and Norway.

 

The Jam at the Toronto International Tap Dance Festival

Co-produced by Toffan Rhythm Projects and the Harbourfront Centre, the inaugural year of the Toronto International Tap Dance Festival featured performances, workshops, panel discussions and an all-are-welcome improvisational dance jam. As the final performance of the festival, The Jam provided a platform for dancers of all ages and levels to perform.
