If only for this moment of awe, the kind all dance-lovers wordlessly hope they'll witness when purchasing at ticket, Light Years earns its space and audience by commissioning one of the most powerful transformative voices in contemporary dance today. Fortunately, it takes us the full distance of contemporary dance's diverse spectrum.
From our audience...
I came here from Mississauga with my dance class, and the entire time I was sitting there with my jaw dropped at how amazing the performance was. Watching Centre Shift, and all the amazing pieces, I walked out of there thinking about how dance has no boundaries, no barriers, no limitations, just commitment and passion. Thank you for one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had through dance.

The opportunity for young students to view other young people dance in a professional manner, in a professional setting is incredibly valuable. My students saw, first hand, the results of a peer's dedication, practice and devotion to their craft. This first-hand experience addresses so many points of our Arts Curriculum. The many genres represented in the program also helps to bring to life Dance Curriculum in terms of exposing students to live examples of aspects of modern and traditional dance forms.
