School Shows

In 2018 and 2019, Fall for Dance North hosted a School Show - a daytime program specifically curated for students grades 7 - 12. Fall for Dance North is proud to have presented its signature offerings of high quality, international dance to students across the GTA for only $10/seat.

We have hosted over 500 students at each of these in-person performances, hailing from regions across the GTA, including Etobicoke, North York, Brampton, Burlington, Oshawa and Thornhill, among others. 

Presented at the Theatre at the Creative School, Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson Theatre), this was an excellent opportunity for students to come together in a professional theatre environment and be introduced to various dance styles and genres from around the world. Following each performance, students also met the dance artists and asked specific questions during a post-show Q&A. 

In 2019, the programme featured:
