For many students, the Dance Innovations performance showcase represents the culmination of the four-year program.

Philippine dance companies, independent artists, choreographers, and dance researchers will mark on stage the presence of Filipinos as one of the largest visible minorities in Toronto and the fastest growing immigrant community in Canada.
