Momentum Dance Toronto (MDT) celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary in our seventh annual production: ONEFIFTY. Through the exclusive use of Canadian music, our dancers have choreographed movement pieces that explore and celebrate all that it means to be a part of this great country.
This is a time of immense global complexity; with technological innovation and globalization at an all-time high, it can be hard to avoid the noise and onslaught of negative media content that exists as a result. Our MDT dancers have chosen to instead highlight the beauty that can come from change and how as Canadians, we work together to make this country better every day. Our dancers will showcase the boundless beauty in the geography and topography of our country. Choreography will celebrate everything from our four seasons, to our musical, athletic and artistic success stories. Most importantly, our dancers have chosen to highlight what is likely the best part of being Canadian: our growing acceptance, diversity and love of one another.
Nature of the Project Reach
MDT currently operates in Toronto. Our focus has been to establish an outlet for creative expression among our members and to give back to our communities through our fundraisers and participation in events.
MDT is committed to the following:
To provide our members with opportunities to explore, discover, create, share and grow through a variety of creative outlets.
To actively seek and find adult professional and non-professional dancers and performers in our community who are eager to share and showcase their strengths and talents.
To ensure a high standard of quality productions that excite, attract and entertain an audience.
To offer open drop-in dance classes that provide an encouraging and non-threatening environment that cultivates and stimulates artistic growth, with the focus on artistic and technical development, from a wide range of teachers and dance styles.
To provide a fun, encouraging, community focused environment where new friendships and connections are possible.
To be an ambassador of dance in our community.
