Limited space available, buy your tickets early! Festival passholders get into the kickoff for free!

We are proud to co-present this event with the Eden Mills Writers' Festival and the Fab 5.

Book early to avoid disappointment!

We're Hiring a General Manager

We are excited to announce some small but important changes to the structure of our staffing. With Office Manager and Publicist Lindsay Morris moving on and pursuing her graduate studies, the Board of Directors saw an opportunity to combine some roles and grow the various arms of the organization, including the Festival, Camps, Co-Productions, Workshops in Schools, and Training. Both Artistic Directors will continue on, with Catrina von Radecki assuming the roles of Artistic Director and Festival Manager and Janet Johnson filling the roles of Artistic Director and Outreach Manager. We are therefore hiring for the position of General Manager, with broad duties including financial administration, marketing management, fund development, and relationship management.

Interested candidates should visit the Guelph Dance website for details of the role, and send any inquiries and applications to info@guelphdance.ca by May 8.
