Fall For Dance North: The Flip Side | Toronto Stages: Dancing Through Time

If only these walls could talk?

Experience the richness of Toronto’s living dance history. Toronto Stages: Dancing Through Time invites you on a virtual tour of fourteen significant Toronto dance venues. Travel back to celebrity moments past through photos and stories highlighting the Canadian and international artists who have enlivened these stages with beauty and innovation. Wander through four special theatres in 360º – in your browser or VR – and hear from the people who know them best. Discover the legacy of these local venues that wait quietly for dance to return, and audiences to gather again.

FFDN builds on its relationship with Toronto dance archives and publisher Dance Collection Danse in this new partnership.
