The World Dance Alliance Global Summit 2017 evening dance series presents dance from around the globe. Each of the four programs features performances by celebrated local, national and international artists. Our Atlantic Dance Program highlights the work of some of Canada’s most innovative dance artists representing a wide range of dance styles and approaches. Our Toronto Heritage Dance program celebrates works by some of Canada’s most iconic and foundational modern dance choreographers. The International Dance programs offer a unique opportunity to view selected dance works from countries representing each of the three WDA regions: Americas, Asia Pacific, and Europe.


World Dance Alliance was founded in 1990 then evolved into three regions Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe. The organization currently has over 500 members. Its mission is to serve as a primary voice for dance and dancers throughout the world, and to encourage the exchange of ideas and the awareness of dance in all its many forms. The Global Summit is an international activity of the World Dance Alliance, which facilitates sharing and networking in a culturally diverse and global context by undertaking choreographic and performance projects, and professional development opportunities. Its activities are initiated through four networks: Research & Documentation, Creation & Presentation, Education & Training, Support & Development. Each region holds annual Assemblies, and every three years, a larger Global Summit is held. Global Summits have been held in Dusseldorf, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Toronto, Brisbane, New York, Taipei and Angers.
