The Fall for Dance North Patrons’ Circle sustains and strengthens the Festival’s ability to make great dance in a diversity of genres accessible to everyone.


We believe that by making dance affordable for one annual festival, people will discover dance, discover new genres they enjoy, and increase their dance attendance throughout the year. 


It’s working -- 95% of our surveyed audience report feeling inspired to see more dance. 72% report actually attending more dance throughout the year because of their experience at FFDN.*


Please consider making your mark by joining the Patrons’ Circle.  Membership begins with an annual gift of $1,000 and entitles Patrons’ Circle members to attend an exclusive event series and pop up events throughout the year.  Additional benefits are available to those who choose to give more.  Please contact Melissa Forstner at for more information.

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:
