Producing, Promoting and Supporting dancers and dances of the African Diaspora since 1994.

dance Immersion is a not-for-profit organization that produces, promotes and supports dancers and dances of the African Diaspora. The organization was established in 1994 to address the need for additional presentation, skill development, and networking opportunities for dance artists of African descent.

Programs introduce various styles of dance and dance artists to the public through a variety of activities that provide a nurturing and supportive environment for professional and emerging dance artists who work and explore diverse styles and expressions. 

dance Immersion has experienced considerable success in connecting dance artists throughout Canada and around the world.
