Our Mission / Learn More About Us

Canada International Dance Culture Association

The mission of our organization is to create a platform for multicultural youth dancers to ethno-racially represent and share their talents and heritage while inspiring others to improve personal and collective well-being. The Board of Directors, consisting of Asian and African professional dance artists, has been working to connect and engage Asian and African children in their cultural dance learning. Every year, our organization hosts the Canada International Youth Dance Festival in downtown Toronto as a multicultural platform to empower Asian and African children to showcase with other children to not only appreciate their cultural identity but also to build a stronger sense of social cohesion. The Board has been facing and observing systemic racism and unconscious biases to racialized Asian and African immigrants. Therefore, our organization aims to develop programs and events to stimulate youth's power to break the cycle of racism and build a better and fairer future by using art to inspire others
