Canada Dance Fest Almost Shut For Lack Of $100,000

The Canada Dance Festival, the country’s largest dance event, was almost canceled this year because of a $100,000 funding shortfall. But the biennial festival will go on in June, reduced to 14 performances, “less than half its previous scope. The festival had budgeted receiving about $100,000 in private sector sponsorships and support, but its requests were turned down.”
