London Dance Festival is the signature event of the Centre of Movement Arts, a non-profit supporting dance and movement in the Forest City. The CMA presents local, provincial and national artists in the annual festival showcasing diverse perspectives in dance. The CMA and LDF endeavour to increase awareness and appreciation of dance in London through accessible performances, workshops, and community events while developing the infrastructure and leadership to sustain a vibrant local dance community. Our main objectives are to grow opportunities for professional dance artist working in London, to develop local dance audiences, and to connect and inspire collaborations between artists, educators and community partners engaged in dance and movement arts. We strive to connect London’s dance artists to the provincial and national dance communities, and to become a regional hub for artists working in and visiting South-Western Ontario.
