Modern Dance Tells The Story Of a Community
Imagine being able to explore a community without ever having to go to more than one place.
That's what will happen if you head to Jane and Finch over the last weekend of August, where a Toronto-based dance company works with community members to get their voices heard through dance and voice.
And while it's not an area synonymous with contemporary dance, Kaeja d’Dance is partnering with people of all ages to perform a free, outdoor show at the Oakdale Community Centre.
Just a few weeks ago, they took over the front lawns of Seaton Village by Bathurst and Bloor. That's where hundreds of people showed up to watch local residents perform dances on their porches that reflect their lives.
This months "Just Dance" is for both those in the community and those who want to get to know it better. As for how much it costs: every show is free.
