Summer Love-In Online 2021

Welcome to Summer Love-In Online! We are excited at the Toronto Dance Community Love-In to be hosting our 11th annual edition. From July 5 - 17, 2021, join our festival of dance, performance, conversation, and LOVE, all digital but with full hearts. We will be busting into summer with all our sweat, smiles, and curiosity. Each event is a session to train or practice, with local, national, and international artists.

Tkaronto/Toronto as a destination for revolutionary independent dance activity by connecting, supporting and welcoming artists locally and across the planet. We are supporting groundbreakers; we are radicalizing movers; we are building a dance house of LOVE.

We are an intergenerational, interdisciplinary, collaborative community, practicing values of on-going consent, generosity, and support. You have your rights to come and go as you need. Please see our Values Statement to further name the space we are fostering and supporting.

Get ready for thoughtful making, magic, dancing, conversation, practicing, togetherness!
