Media Release- Harbourfront Centre


Step Out of the ordinary with the new season of Harbourfront Centre's NextSteps
TORONTO, ON (August 19, 2015) – Harbourfront Centre is thrilled to announce the lineup for the new NextSteps season featuring the best in Canadian dance, running from September 2015 to June 2016. The series will feature 19 shows, 59 performances from 15 companies that explore the diversity of dance.
The first half of the season includes local legend Bill James’ first complete solo work, a group piece choreographed by up-and-comer Hanna Kiel, a remount of the past World Stage show EUNOIA, as well as traditional holiday performances by Ballet Creole with music by Nathaniel Dett Chorale, and Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre. With discounts for students and youth 25 and under – as well as for industry professionals and seniors – NextSteps extends an invitation to everyone to step out of the ordinary and into an extraordinary season at Harbourfront Centre.
“Harbourfront Centre has been a supporter of dance from its earliest days more than 40 years ago,” says Lynanne Sparrow, Artistic Associate for Dance at Harbourfront Centre. “The NextSteps programme was established 10 years ago, taking that commitment to the next level by partnering with Toronto’s outstanding dance community. It is one of the city’s most diverse dance series and we are honoured to continue to partner with key companies in our city, establishing new relationships and supporting the wealth of Toronto’s dance scene.”
The NextSteps lineup will continue to grow as the season progresses. Please check the website for the most up-to-date schedule. For additional information, including photos and videos, please visit or connect with us @HarbourfrontTO #danceTO.
