This year Fall for Dance North launched a new travel program designed to introduce friends of the festival to unique dance locales. From July 27–August 1, 2019, FFDN hit the road with 10 dancers lovers to tour the oldest, internationally acclaimed dance festival in the US - Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket-MA.


Over the course of 5 days, travellers enjoyed performances from Paul Taylor Dance Company, Caleb Teicher & Company, and Wendy Whelan in a new world premiere by Lucinda Childs, tours of Jacob's Pillow, Tanglewood, and Lumberyard Center for Film and Performing Arts, day trips to MASS MoCA and Hudson-NY, as well as private get togethers with Wendy Whelan and Michelle Dorrance plus exclusive performance chats with dance historian Henning Rübsam.

FFDN does not currently have any upcoming dance trips scheduled. Please reference this page for future opportunities to travel with us.

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:
