About Ontario Culture Days:
Ontario Culture Days is a celebration of artists and cultural organizations in our communities. Every year, we coordinate an exciting celebration of arts & culture programming across Ontario.
KasheDance is an Afro-Contemporary dance company with roots in Toronto and branches connecting it to the United States and the Caribbean. The company is unique in Canada in its use of the Critical Response Process to create, research and present dances that give voice to the realities of African Diasporic experiences. A creative practice based on traditional and contemporary diasporic languages (“KasheDantek”) has helped the company build its audience, connect to established artists while focusing on performance, as well as education and outreach opportunities. KasheDance invites everyone to dance, move and create in a shared experience. Kevin A. Ormsby is the Artistic Director of KasheDance, and will lead the Creatives in Residence project.
