Dance Together Festival
June 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Dance Together Festival offers free open-air dance workshops and events that celebrate positive and accessible dance experiences in Amos Waites Park. Throughout the summer, Mimico Square is transformed into a community dance space with a colourful dance floor mural painted by local visual artists in collaboration with neighbourhood participants. The festival takes place on Saturday evenings, beginning with a mural unveiling dance party on June 24th and continuing July 8th-29th with open dance workshops in Afro Cuban, West African, Vogue, Popping, Brazilian Samba, Ukrainian Folk, Latin Fusion and Contemporary Indigenous Dance. This year is our 5th anniversary in Mimico and will feature live music and dance performances on the mural. The activities are open to all levels, ages and experiences.
