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.

dance Incubator Initiative

The Incubator initiative is a collaborative project between dance Immersion and North York Arts (NYA), offering dance artists an opportunity to explore, redevelop or complete a work in a supportive structure that provides access to the North York Arts Upper Gallery and Studio Theatre. 

Do you have a dance  work that is ready to be explored, developed, and refined? OR a work in progress ready for more development?

The Incubator initiative is designed with a focus on having the freedom and additional time for exploration, rehearsal and revision, with an opportunity to  enhance presentation skills in a professional venue.
