PORCH VIEW DANCES 2020

ABOUT PORCH VIEW DANCES 2020

2012 Winner Globe & Mail, Best Site Specific Work

Canadian Dance Assembly’s “I Love Dance Community Award”

Kaeja d’Dance returns for its 9th annual Porch View Dances!

We are thrilled to welcome back 3 beautiful families from PVDs past to continue their journey alongside us. 

Join Maurycy as he guides audiences on a tour through the neighbourhood. Along the way, you’ll see dances performed by everyday people (families, friends, and even strangers!) on porches and lawns and vignettes danced by professionals in the most unexpected places.

HOW IT WORKS

The audience will gather at showtime where they will be greeted by our amazing tour guide, Maurycy, who will take them through the Seaton Village streets, stopping to enjoy dance pieces along the way!
