Call for Submissions: Toronto International Dance Festival 2021

The Toronto International Dance Festival (TIDF) is now accepting applications for the 2021 virtual event. The 9th edition of this festival is focused on supporting the practice and visibility of diverse dance companies, choreographers, and dance artists. As the roadmap to reopening venues is unclear, the festival is putting out an open call for new and original works creatively captured to be showcased through an online virtual presentation.

All artists who work with movement and performance are invited to apply. All genres, forms, modalities, and varieties of dance, movement, and performance will be considered. Past festivals have included Classical, Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Cultural Folk, and many more dance styles, with performers from around the world. 

This application is open to creators with experience.

The final presentation format will be a LIVE STREAM of pre-recorded performances on the TIDF website and other social media platforms.

Deadline: July 31


Priority will be given to artists of colour, artists, living with disabilities, new generation artists (18-30), new Canadian (immigrant) artists, and artists from varying geographic locations.
