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:

Meet Christopher Corsini


Before the artist talk began, I snagged a chance to chat very briefly with Christopher Corsini. For anyone who attended a panel or artist talk, you’d have noticed Chris providing simultaneous ASL Interpretation for the audience. I had been watching his work from the first panel I attended, and I just wanted to confirm my suspicion that he is also a dancer. His movement in his ASL Interpretation work reverberates from his hand gestures right through his whole body, and yet he remains solidly grounded and balanced through both feet throughout. So, yes, he is a dancer, musician and performer who works with Deaf and disabled artists and is exploring ways to fully integrate ASL Interpretation of lyrics into dance within pop music contexts. FYI. Suspicion confirmed.
