DTRC’s regional resource centres in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal are open to all dancers and interested members of the public. Each resource centre contains books and magazines on making transitions and finding best-fit careers, along with information on dance community activities and events.
The DTRC's brochure introduces our programs and services, and lets dancers, donors, and the public know how they can get involved with the organization.
Transitions keeps members and DTRC friends in touch with what's happening at the DTRC and in the wider world of dance.
The DTRC's Annual Report provides a snapshot of our accomplishments and initiatives from the past year.
