Founded in 2012 by Co-Directors Kristen Carcone and David Norsworthy, TOES FOR DANCE (TFD) is an artist-run non-profit contemporary dance organization based in Tkaronto. Our mission is to share art and connect people through workshops and performances; fostering a community united by shared values of curiosity and collaboration. Our artistic paradigm is informed by western Modern dance, Contemporary and Improvisation, as well as meditation/mindfulness, reiki, and non-violent communication. In order to create sanctuaries of safety, we prioritize leading with vulnerability and attending to the ever-evolving needs of our relationships with artists, participants, and audience members. We contribute to the well-being and vibrancy of our society by creating unique and valuable platforms for artistic exchange/professional development, public engagement, and dance education. Since our inception, TFD has produced performances for over 7,900 students and public audience members in the GTA, Ottawa and London, including a festival, full-length productions, mixed-programs, and site-specific work. Furthermore, we have developed and run educational programming for approximately 6,000 young people (annual programs include Fresh Dance Intensive, Ignite! and Reconnection Lab).
