New Ontario Dances Artist Portal Connects Professional Dance Artists with Ontario Dances’ Presenters

The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) and CCI – Ontario Presenting Network (CCI) are pleased to announce the launch of the Ontario Dances Artist Portal. Hosted by CCI, the website provides a new access point for Ontario’s professional dance artists to share information directly with Ontario-based, multidisciplinary presenters funded through OAC’s Ontario Dances program.

About the Ontario Dances Artist Portal

Dance artists will be able to post promotional materials and invitations to events on the portal’s Upcoming Performances page, as well as propose audience development projects, share details about outreach activities and touring projects on the Projects for Consideration page. The site also features a Step-by-Step Guide.

The Ontario Dances Artist Portal will help raise the profile of dance in Ontario, foster new connections with the arts presenters supported through the Ontario Dances program, and increase the range and number of dance activities available to Ontario audiences.
