About The Festival

Lights Dance aspires to celebrate dance in its diversity and endless possibilities, through live performance, but also the cinematic medium. The festival began as a way to bridge our love for both of these mediums, and having gone through its first iteration, is ready to evolve.

Lights Dance wants to make dance more accessible to all. We are passionate about creating a stronger dance community here in Canada by equipping choreographers, dancers, and filmmakers through education, mentorship, and building a stronger network. It is imperative for us to strengthen the voices and craftsmanship of everyone who desires to tell stories through dance, whatever their background or identity may be.
