As the Interim Managing Director of the Dance Arts Institute (formerly The School of Toronto Dance Theatre), I am thrilled to share with you an exciting opportunity that lies ahead of us.

Today, on #GivingTuesday, a day celebrated globally for its emphasis on philanthropy and community transformation, we are also launching our Year-End Campaign. This campaign is not just about fundraising; it’s a crucial step towards a significant evolution for our Institute as we settle into our new home at Daniels Spectrum.

Your donations will play a pivotal role in this transition. They will enable us to implement a transformative curriculum that places integrated, student-centered learning at its core. This approach is designed to nurture not just skilled dancers, but versatile artists who are prepared to make a meaningful impact in the ever evolving landscape of Contemporary dance.

Furthermore, your generous support will ensure the sustainability of the Dance Arts
Institute during this crucial phase. It will allow us to increase our ability to support students by continuing to provide vital bursaries and scholarships, eliminating the financial burden of post-secondary education, making our top-tier training accessible to all.

With your generous donation, you’re not just donating to a dance school; you are investing in the future of dance and supporting the growth of the next generation of artists who will carry the torch of creativity and innovation in our community.

Let’s come together to make this transition a milestone in our journey towards excellence in dance education.

Warmest Regards,
Daniela Nardi
Interim Managing Director
