Living a “normal” life in The 6ix is becoming easier and easier as the city bursts back to life. This year, Fall for Dance North (FFDN) is launching a hybrid version of their dance festival from September 11 through October 29. The 7th edition of the festival will be a mix of in-person and online performances that are sure to satisfy your artistic itch. Let’s be honest, the past year has been a little depressing without the city’s usual art scene. If you’ve attended the festival in previous years you’ll be excited to know this is the largest program line-up in the festival’s 7 year history!
FFDN is Toronto’s largest dance event of the autumn season. Nothing brings the city together quite like the arts. This is the perfect event to reconnect with and support dancers and creatives in The 6ix. You can experience a wide variety of dance through the festival without breaking the bank and remind yourself what this city has to offer.
Ilter Ibrahimof, FFDN Artistic Director, describes the festival as a place where everyone, most anywhere, can make dance memories together filled with the rich assemblage of forms, sounds, styles, colours and emotions.
