About the Map

You can explore the map contents by clicking icons on the map or using the search options to the right. If you’re not getting results, try clearing the search fields and do a more general search (such as typing in only part of a name or selecting multiple dance forms). Remove any text in the ‘Name Search’ field if you choose to use the filters instead. Use the slider bar on the left to zoom in and out. Click ‘Reset’ to return to the initial view of the map with all data points showing. 

Where multiple organizations have the same street address only one of them will appear when you zoom in on that location on the map. This is a limitation of Google Maps (the map application that the dance map uses). We are working on a solution. In the meantime, all organizations do appear in the ‘Results’ list below the map when you use the appropriate filter (Dance Form, Category, Province/Territory and City/Town).

This map presents dance-related organizations located to date, such as dance companies, associations, schools, and special events. The content will continue to grow as the study progresses.

About the Canada Dance Mapping Study


Dance takes place almost anywhere: on the streets, at schools and in community centres across the country. It’s practiced by young and old and enjoyed in-person and online. The Canada Council is leading a major research project to get a clearer picture of Canada’s full dance ecosystem and its social and economic impacts. It is working with the Ontario Arts Council (a co-funder of the study), and in collaboration with the members of the dance community and arts funders at all levels.
