Dance leaves the mark of amazement in our hearts. Let's give it the resources to pass it into each of us.
The emotions conveyed by the dancing body are universal, and transcend gender, age and borders. By naturally expressing our truths and desires, movement is the true language of freedom. That’s why we believe that dance has a greater part than ever to play in bringing joy and hope to our hearts.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to allow a venture like Danse Danse to grow. Your support is essential to allow artists to express themselves and spread their passion to theatres and beyond. So that all the colours of dance may continue to flourish for a long time to come.
"For the enjoyment given so far and the pleasure to come."
—Thomas Jubeault, donor
