in contemporary ballet

April 26, 2020

Union Station's West Wing

Presented by Union Dance in collaboration with Fall for Dance North and The National Ballet of Canada (NBoC)’s CreativAction programme, this exciting pop-up event brings ballet off the stage into the unique context of a train station. Unfortunately due to the current situation with COVID-19, and Union Station's position as the city's busiest transit hub, Meeting Pointe is postponed until further notice.

We respectfully acknowledge the sacred land on which Fall for Dance North operates, and upon which our events and activities take place.  It has been a site of human activity for over 15,000 years and it is the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit, in addition to other peoples, both named and unnamed.  Today, the meeting place of Tkaronto is still home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in this community, and on this territory.

Fall for Dance North thanks the following funding partners for their ongoing support:
