Lakeshore Arts and Kaeja d’Dance partnered once again to bring the celebrated community dance project, Porch View Dances (PVD): Real People Dancing in Real Spaces, to the residents of South Etobicoke.
PVD is an award-winning community dance event that engages everyday people as creators, storytellers and performers – many of whom have never danced before.
Over two days in June, PVD joined hands with the community of Mimico to celebrate the stories of the neighbourhood residents and to bridge the gap between professional art and everyday people. Families opened their homes and their hearts, danced on their front lawns, and invited their community to share their stories. An expeirence none of them will soon forget.
