Event Details

Dance for the People is a really fun after-work dance party. It's an open and inclusive space where people of all ages are welcome and encouraged.

DFTP is a PWYC family friendly, consent-driven, inclusive space, where all are welcome and encouraged to join.   DFTP is part of a growing wellness focused initiatives that focus on physical and mental wellbeing. It is a community building event that encourages intergenerational and diverse people to come together to share space and time together.
 
 
In a city where many spaces are determined by barriers such as ability, cost, etc. DFTP aims to breakdown many of those barriers so that ALL people can participate.

************************************************************************************************

This session of Dance for the People is going to support an amazing cause!!! 

We are helping to bring over a Syrian refugee family of 6 brothers and sisters. The family is desperate to leave Turkey, where they are unable to work or study legally.  As part of the sponsorship process, our group is required to raise enough money to (a very modest amount) to support the family’s 1st year of expenses in Canada.

In total, we need to raise $90,000 to support them. This includes about $15,000 per person.

Every dollar that’s donated will go directly to ts like rent, food, winter clothes, and transportation. Your donation will help them to start their lives in Toronto, the first stable place they’ve been able to call home in many, many years.

Learn more about the family here

If you would like to contribute directly you can donate here as well:
