The dance collection Danse hall of fame
WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THE 2023 HONOUREES
The Dance Collection Danse Hall of Fame launched on March 25, 2018 – a long-overdue celebration of Canada’s premier artists. It was seminal in powerfully validating Dance Collection Danse’s achievements of 35+ years. Now in its fifth iteration, the feedback we continue to receive suggests this event is unlike any other on the Toronto calendar.
With the contribution of a generous donor, we will be matching funds up to $10,000 to help reach our goal of $20,000!
The 2023 inductees include: Peggy Baker, C.M., O.Ont.; Rex Harrington, O.C., F.R.S.C.; Édouard Lock, O.C., C.Q.; Zab Maboungou; Karen Pheasant-Neganigwane; Jean Stoneham Orr; Mimi Beck (William J.S. Boyle Dance Luminary Award); Lawrence Adams and Miriam Adams, C.M. (Community Builders); and Trailblazers Irene Apinée and Jury Gotshalks, Don Gillies, and Grace Tinning. To learn more about the inductees, visit HERE.
Many costs are associated with producing this landmark event, including inductee travel and lodging, venue, food and beverage, production of videos, and live stream, plus performer fees for our exciting live performance pop-ups! To continue producing a first-rate experience, we are focussing our new campaign on raising funds to offset the costs.
If you have attended a past event or watched the live stream, you will appreciate the importance of celebrating our diverse and storied legacy.
Not only does the DCD Hall of Fame event offer an opportunity to gather from across the country and celebrate Canada’s rich culture as embodied by dance, but it also creates invaluable archival material to be accessed for generations to come!
Stay tuned for announcements for the Sandra Faire Next Generation Award and the Miriam Adams Exploration Bursary recipient.
CREATE YOUR LEGACY
Lois Smith was The National Ballet of Canada’s first prima ballerina. She believed so strongly in the legacy of Canadian dance that she became the first person to make a gift to DCD in her estate plans.
Lois’ inspiring generosity facilitated DCD’s bold move into a new space. This change has in turn boosted our capacity to celebrate and share the remarkable art form that she so loved.
You too can leave a lasting legacy that reflects your passion for dance. Anyone can give Canadian artists a firm footing on the continuum of history by making a gift to DCD through their estate. Regardless of income, you can make a deferred gift without impacting your current lifestyle. Contributing can be as simple as adding a sentence or appendix to your current estate plan.
To learn more about including DCD in your estate plans please contact our Manager of Donor Relations, Vickie Fagan: 416-365-3233 / vickie[AT]dcd[DOT]ca
If you have already named DCD in your estate plans, please let us know so that we can work with you to recognize your extraordinary generosity and commitment to strengthening the legacy of Canadian dance.
