Dance Ontario has said goodbye to Network Coordinator Peter Kelly. His great work in the regions this past year has moved our main outreach project, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, a step closer to stabilizing the three new networks in Sudbury, Windsor and Algoma/St Ste Marie.  In that position, we are now delighted to welcome Grace Smith (left) who holds a BFA-Honours in Dance from York University.

Congratulations to Artistic & Executive Co-Director Renata Soutter and her wife Carolyn! We are so thrilled for them that they have opened their forever hearts and homes through adoption to two new daughters, sisters - Erin and Meka. What great news!

Starting in November, Renata will be away from Propeller on parental leave. We look forward to her return in the spring!

Registration now open!
