Dear Friends,
as a new year approaches, i look back and think about how the dtrC- staff, board and donors- has been there to support our fearless members.

At the DTRC, it is your support that has helped Canada’s professional dancers when they need it most. Dario Dinuzzi, Safiya Ricketts, Stephan Possin, Audrey Bergeron, and amber Barton, featured herein, not only represent the resiliency of our members but also the capacity of dancers to excel as leaders and mentors while dancing and once they leave the stage. This potential can only manifest itself when training, support, and guidance are within reach. Because of your conviction and generosity, the DTRC has been able to provide all of this and more to professional dancers across the country for over 35 years, bridging the gap so that Canada’s exceptional artists can transfer their tenacity, creativity, and reimagine a successful career either in parallel to their dance practice or as second, full-time vocation.

Step Forward with us and help Canada’s dancers weather this unusual moment and remain optimistic about building careers full of new possibilities.
On behalf of our Board of directors and national staff, we wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday.

Kristian Clarke
Executive Director
