In it's most powerful form, dance performance can express ideas, provoke thought, initiate social change and rejuvenate the human spirit. Our approach to performance is interactive and inclusive.

possibilities of dialogue

Choreography by David Norsworthy and Marielis Garcia
"Possibilities of Dialogue" is an interactive performance that explores conversation and creative process. This work premiered in April 2019, co-presented by TOES FOR DANCE and co-produced by North York Arts with funding from the Toronto Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
TOES FOR DANCE presents a series of Works-In-Process Showings at high schools across the Greater Toronto Area. TFD Co-Directors Kristen Carcone and David Norsworthy share their current choreographic projects as unfinished explorations to reveal the process of creating contemporary dance.
"Soaring high yet landing on their feet, TOES FOR DANCE creates a piece of modern art that needs no explanation, only eyes and ears... keeping its audience engaged through its variety, its content and its varying stage texture, providing for an orchestra of emotion and music in its physical form."
-Adam Borohov, The Theatre Reader
"The technical skill level of the whole cast was impeccable. I wasn’t aware of their effort at all while I was watching. Maybe the alternate ways of seeing offered throughout the night, these prompts to look with fresh eyes, allowed me the freedom to stop watching dance as a dancer and experience the work from where I was as an audience member. In moments, I forgot I was watching dance and instead was afforded the space and permission to revel in the joy of witnessing art unfold on stage."
-Sarah Lochhead, The Dance Current
