Momentum Dance Toronto (MDT) is one of Tdot’s hidden treasures. This fantastic non-profit dance company launched in September 2010, and they have been working VERY hard since to prepare their premiere performance and production, TEMPORADA. If you are a fan of dance, enjoy supporting local talent, or need to get out of the house, I would highly suggest attending MDT’s premier show April 27th through to April 30th 2011 at the Winchester Street Theatre.
MDT is a collective of passionate, artistic and professional individuals who have all studied dance in various forms throughout their lives. Many of its dancers have chosen to pursue dance as a career, while others dance for personal joy and self-expression. Momentum Dance Toronto has provided its members with a creative outlet to keep dance in their lives, while still accommodating their busy schedules.
Their production, TEMPORADA, uses the four seasons as a means to depict the seasons of life, and will feature original works of choreography from a variety of artists, along with special guest performances in their shows. TEMPORADA celebrates what it is to be human; the joy, the love, the challenges, the loss and the inevitable hope that gives the tempo of life meaning, rhythm and momentum.
Performances run April 27, 28, 29 & 30 at 8 pm, with a matinee performance onApril 30th at 2 pm, at the Winchester Street Theatre (80 Winchester Street, Toronto). Tickets are $25 and can be purchased online, by phone: 416.556.5449; or at the door.
