HELP US CELEBRATE THE BEST IN CANADIAN DANCE
Since its launch in 2018, The DCD Hall of Fame has inducted 49 dance luminaries and employed over 50 arts workers. We have engaged more than 40 committed volunteers to help ensure the day stays on track!
We couldn’t do it without them and the support of donors and sponsors like you! Please help us keep the DCD Hall of Fame thriving by donating to our matching campaign!
