Friday, July 1 – No LDF events

In solidarity with Indigenous peoples all across Turtle Island, the London Dance Festival will not be holding events on July 1st. 

We encourage our community to bear witness to the intergenerational trauma that continues to impact Residential School survivors and their families and to learn more about this part of our collective history.
