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!
