Dance Mid-Cycle Operating Funding

Mid-Cycle Report Deadline: April 2, 2024

For questions about this program, contact Catalina Fellay-Dunbar, Program Manager, Dance

What does this program support?

The Dance Program provides Multi-Year Operating support to professional non-profit dance organizations engaged in the creation, production, presentation and preservation of dance, and other activities that contribute to the development of dance, dance artists, and dance audiences in Toronto. The program aims to encourage long-term vision and planning and to provide stability for dance organizations. Funding through this program supports both operations and programming. The City of Toronto supports this program through a funding allocation approved annually by Toronto City Council.

Grants awarded may be less than the full amount requested. These grants contribute to the artistic and administrative costs associated with an organization’s ongoing Dance activities. TAC does not provide funding for capital projects (e.g. equipment, renovations, purchase of buildings), fundraising events/projects or deficit reduction.

Who can apply?

  • ONLY organizations/collectives that have been already receiving a Multi-Year operating grant and are in the second or third year of their multi-year cycle may apply to this program.
  • The first year of the multi-year cycle for Dance Operating program is 2025.
  • First time applicants may only apply to the Annual Operating program in the first year of a multi-year cycle.
