A Dance Studio Without Walls
March 16 + 17 / April 27 + 28 / May 18 + 19
Catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the creation and rehearsal processes of new dance works, watch a professional company dance class or participate in one of our NEW public workshops within the unique context of Union Station's West Wing at our Open Studio, as part of Union Dance. 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.
Unfortunately, due to the current situation with COVID-19, and Union Station's position as the city's busiest transit hub, all Open Studio activities are postponed until futher notice. While saddened, we want to do our part to prioritize the health and wellbeing of all participants in our programming. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
Union Station's West Wing is located on street level just west of the Great Hall in the historic area of the building. Enter the building from the Front Street entrance and turn right. It is easily accessible via the Yonge Line on the TTC. Limited seating available on a first come, first serve basis. Free Wifi, presented by TD, is also available.
Open Studio Highlights
From September 23-25, as part of our annual fall festival, we transformed Union Station's West Wing into our Open Studio, an open-concept dance studio where the public was invited to observe the raw creative processes of renowned dancers and choreographers. Check out the artists and companies we showcased below:
