The community we serve is made up of dancers, choreographers, teachers and the general public who express themselves through dance, their culture, and concerns of the African Canadian population. This community has a diverse background, which encompasses Africa, the Caribbean, South America, North America, and Europe. dance Immersion’s activities are based in Toronto, Ontario where the large population base readily lends support to a vibrant dance community. Our programs include opportunities for skill development, performance enhancement, networking and knowledge sharing with individuals who practice like dance styles. We strive to educate regarding the meaning and significance of dance and the arts as a whole, involving children, youth and adults. Who We Work With dance Immersion is committed to actively seeking out, presenting and supporting the artistic product of dance artists to the broader community. We work with numerous organizations and individuals, locally, nationally and internationally, in different capacities to accomplish our program goals. dance Immersion has been a member of the CanDance Network since 1995. This Pan-Canadian affiliation of dance presenters actively network and engage in the business and development of the presentation of Canadian dance artists. dance Immersion is also been a member of the International Association of Blacks In Dance (IABD) since 1998. The purpose of this organization is to preserve and promote dance by people of African ancestry or origin, and to assist in increasing opportunities for artists to function in networking, funding, performance, education, audience development, philosophical dialogue, touring and advocacy.
