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:


A Dance Studio Without Walls

Catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the creative working processes of local dance artists and choreographers within the unique context of Union Station's West Wing at our Open Studio, as part of Union Dance. Witness the creation and rehearsal process of new dance works or watch a professional company dance class - all for FREE in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Birthed in Fall 2017 as part of our 3rd annual festival programming in partnership with Union Station, Open Studio has since expanded, bringing dance off the stage and into the country’s busiest transit hub year-round.


Open Studio will return to Union Station in spring 2020. Check back in the new year for more information!
