Dancing through time

TORONTO’S DANCE HISTORY 1900-1980

Dancing Through Time: Toronto’s Dance History 1900-1980 explored the development of the city’s dance scene from influential touring artists to vaudevillians to the ballet and modern dance booms to the diversity of dance forms present in the city. It featured costumes, photographs, playbills, souvenir programs, posters, designs, and more.

Running in the summer of 2011, this live exhibit was presented by the Market Gallery and curated by Amy Bowring of Dance Collection Danse.

The online exhibition gives you a glimpse of the live installation and includes footage of the speeches and performances at the gala opening, as well as a special video created to commemorate DCD’s 25th anniversary.
