The community we serve is made up of dancers, choreographers, teachers and the general public who express themselves through dance, their culture, and concerns of the African Canadian population. This community has a diverse background, which encompasses Africa, the Caribbean, South America, North America, and Europe. dance Immersion’s activities are based in Toronto, Ontario where the large population base readily lends support to a vibrant dance community. Our programs include opportunities for skill development, performance enhancement, networking and knowledge sharing with individuals who practice like dance styles. We strive to educate regarding the meaning and significance of dance and the arts as a whole, involving children, youth and adults.
