2011 was an extraordinary year for the DTRC. We ended our 25th Anniversary with two spectacularly successful galas in Toronto and Vancouver, where we celebrated our vibrant dance community and raised vital funds for our organization. 2011 also saw the creation of our 25 Transitions souvenir book, a collection of inspirational transition stories written by members and alumni at various stages in their career. There could not be a more fitting time to get inspired by our members’ remarkable stories, so check back each week as we release a new story from the book on our website – we hope that you find them as insightful as we have!more »

At the heart of the interview was the question: why should ordinary Canadians care about the arts?more »
