Performing Dance Arts Weighs in on National Ballet of Canada Participation in Fall for Dance North
Toronto, Canada, June 26, 2015 – Performing Dance Arts (www.PerformingDanceArts.ca), Toronto’s leading dance studio for children of all skill levels, is weighing in on the National Ballet of Canada taking part in the inaugural Fall for Dance North festival.
The Fall for Dance festival, up until now exclusive to New York City, has announced a show in Toronto set to run from September 29 to October 1. Though the full list of participants has yet to be revealed, the National Ballet of Canada has announced that it will be represented in the festival, performing a piece that has yet to be determined. (Knelman, M., “New York’s Fall for Dance fest gets a Toronto spinoff,” The Toronto Star, June 25, 2015; http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/stage/2015/06/25/new-yorks-fall-for-dance-fest-gets-a-toronto-spinoff.html.)
“The National Ballet of Canada’s participation represents the class of competitive ballet in all of Canada,” says Ashley Daychak, Creative Director at Performing Dance Arts. “Many students of dance aspire to be part of the National Ballet of Canada, so it’s easy to understand the prestige, amount of work, and dedication that goes into reaching that level.”
Fall for Dance has been part of the New York dance scene for 12 years. With the goal of introducing a younger audience to the art of dance, the event has seen over 250 thousand people attend and watch the 200 plus dance companies it has featured during its 11 shows to date. And now, Fall for Dance is bringing that same spirit to the north.

“With the level of success Fall for Dance has had introducing this era of young people to dance, it’s really an exciting time for the dancers, choreographers, and industry overall,” Daychak explains. “Any time so many people get excited about dance is a positive movement that will hopefully see the same results in Toronto as it does New York.”
Other Fall for Dance acts include the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and Peggy Baker. Fall for Dance North will run from September 29 to October 1 with tickets costing $10.00 per person.
“Such a low price point encourages a diverse audience of all ages, including those who were only slightly curious about dance,” Daychak concludes. “And having the National Ballet of Canada take part in what is shaping out to be a classic spectacle can only increase the interest and excitement.”
Performing Dance Arts has just wrapped up pre-registration for its 2015–2016 season, but parents are encouraged to visit www.PerformingDanceArts.ca as spots are still available for both competitive and casual lessons.
