YDF performances

Performances and Talkbacks

Enjoy two performance series suitable for all, lovingly selected by our community curators. Our artists will immerse you in moving human stories with many themes from love-everlasting to deepening personal identity. 


Whether you have never danced before or are a seasoned groover, you will have a great time at our free workshops. Classes range from African to contemporary dance and are open to all ages and abilities.

YDF parties


Opening and closing parties will give you a chance to meet others in the community, celebrate, and cut a rug! Sip on beverages provided by Collective Arts Brewing and let talented Toronto DJs spin you into another world.
