Patricia Beatty, Co-Founder of Toronto Dance Theatre, Remembered as a ‘Warrior Queen’

Patricia Beatty was a multi-faceted artist: a choreographer, a dancer, a teacher, a poet. She was a true pioneer – one of the most influential figures of modern dance in Canada. She’s best known as co-founder of Toronto Dance Theatre, along with David Earle and Peter Randazzo. Her death at age 84 marked decades of choreography, teaching and writing that inspired thousands of young dancers.
