U of T Festival of Dance 2013
Mar 22 – 23, 2013
Hart House Theatre proudly hosts Canada’s largest University dance festival – the U of T Festival of Dance (FoD).
Initially created 18 years ago as a venue to provide dance groups on campus the opportunity to perform on stage for an audience, the Festival of Dance has now grown into a celebration of the diversity and prosperity of the U of T dance community. Past events have included over 60 different dance pieces, well over 200 performers and an impressive variety of dance forms including: Jazz, Ballet, Ballroom, Modern, Contact Improv, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Irish, Latin, and Egyptian Belly Dancing, just to name a few. With such an abundance of dance groups associated with U of T, participation in the festival is a great opportunity for dance groups to promote their own work and ventures, and interact with other dancers and forge collaborations.
