Common Ground Dance Festival presented by TOES FOR DANCE is a free, outdoor, participatory celebration of movement and community that includes workshops for all levels, student workshops, open rehearsals, site-specific performances, mainstage performances, and community co-creation experiences. In 2022, our 2nd annual festival will take place at Lee Lifeson Art Park in North York with weekly events occurring between September 24-October 8.
The festival’s mission is intercultural, with programming that gathers a diverse constellation of Toronto’s artists and community members for the purpose of creating connection. We strive to foster the conditions for embodied togetherness without the imperative of understanding or agreeing; allowing the beauty and power of multiple artistic expressions to move through a shared safe space. This intersection of ideas generates the possibility for curiosity to emerge, and a sense of belonging.
Whether you’re an experienced dancer or you have an unexplored curiosity for movement, let’s breathe deeply, feel our bodies connected to the earth, and revel in the joys of expressing and dancing – together! We are looking forward to welcoming you!
