Fall For Dance North

Fall for Dance North - one of the most anticipated festivals in Toronto, under the direction of Ilter Ibrahimof, returns to the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts for it's third season. Celebrating Canadian dancers and choreographers in Canada’s 150th year, FFDN once again presents 10 internationally acclaimed dance companies from Canada and around the world over three nights, all for only $15 for any seat in the house.

Each night will offer a unique program with highlights that include world premiere festival commissions from Robert Binet of the National Ballet of Canada, seven-time world champion Irish dancer Michaela Hinds, and the ambitious world-record breaking 72-Person Ball Passing community dance project cast from auditions throughout Toronto.
 
This year FFDN is also hosting an opening night party where you can celebrate with festival artists and team in Sony Centre's main lobby with DJs, a cash bar and tasty food vendors - $25 for anyone with any festival ticket! Also new in 2017 - you can buy a Festival Pass at $60 which includes one ticket to each of the evening programs and the opening night party!
