Dancing in the Third Act

Would you like to dance? Over 60? Are you able-bodied and adventurous? Then we want YOU!

Arts Etobicoke, Lakeshore Arts and City of Toronto have partnered to present Dancing in The Third Act: a community dance project which will engage 12 Etobicoke seniors in an internationally recognized dance production under the guidance of award winning choreographer Randy Glynn. The production is a signature project for the City of Toronto’s Cultural Hotspot West: Etobicoke.

Seniors involved DON’T NEED ANY PREVIOUS DANCE TRAINING, just a willingness to try and the ability to work as a team. Participants will be needed from March-May 2015 for 3-hour sessions of FREE instruction and rehearsal, 3 times a week. All participants are not required for all rehearsals, however you should be able to make a commitment to 90% of the dates.
