Heliconian Club launches 2015/16 Dance Artist in Residence program

The Toronto Heliconian Club Dance Artist in Residence program for 2015/16 is being launched.

The year-long Dance Artist in Residence program at the Heliconian Club, now in its fourth year, offers free dance rehearsal space in an encouraging and sympathetic artistic atmosphere in a heritage building in the heart of Yorkville in downtown Toronto. The former church space is large and open, unobstructed and naturally lit. It has a floor boasting a suitable dance surface and good resilience.

We are seeking an emerging dancer/choreographer with a body of established work, who would benefit from the use of free and available rehearsal space – and someone inclined to take advantage of the opportunity to potentially collaborate with other members of the Club from other disciplines. During their year of residency, the Dance Artist will have access to all concerts, events and productions as current Club members do.

Interested candidates should prepare a brief biography and an artistic statement to support the submission of two video pieces of original work. We require a letter of recommendation from an individual who can comment on their suitability for this position. In addition we ask for a letter of intent/ an outline for the creation of upcoming work during the year ahead.

In exchange, we ask that a work-in-progress rehearsal be open to Heliconian Club members part way through the year, and we like to finish with a short June performance event. There will be an opportunity to collaborate in an ‘Art Jam’ with other Club members from other sections such as Art, Music, Literature and Drama. In addition we plan to participate again in Doors Open Toronto in May 2016 and this would be a good opportunity to show a vignette piece of the Dance Artist’s work.

The space is readily available during the week, especially in the daytime, however evening and weekend access can be arranged. It is necessary to work with the Club’s General Manager on mutually agreeable times for use of the space.

Interested candidates should submit their application by email to by July 21, 2015.

Portfolios will be reviewed by an assigned Dance panel at the Club and the chosen applicant will be contacted in early August.
