Guelph Dance

Join our Board of Directors

“In 2018 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Guelph Dance!  A truly large feat when you consider our small festival celebrates an art form still considered challenging and inaccessible to many, especially in a small city.  Guelph Dance has courageously and single-handedly managed to cultivate a growing population of appreciators, admirers, dancers and educators. Guelph has become a city that is marked on the map and recognized as a platform and center for contemporary dance. Simply amazing! The passion and perseverance needed to make this happen should not be underestimated.”
