PLEASE VOTE - IDO WORLD GALA

PLEASE VOTE FOR PAIGE - closed Monday May 11

2020 - Canada has ONE dancer that qualified for the IDO Best of the Best.  Due to covid-19, it is a facebook event this year.  Ballet is fundamental for dancers yet it rarely makes it to dance finals. Every vote counts!

To vote, please go to facebook.com/IDOGalaWorldEvent/ and scroll down until you see Paige Diggle and hit the LIKE button!  That's it!  This is to get her through to the next round.  They will cut until they have their top 5 so stay tuned.

2015 Canadian Gala Finalists (and winners!)

From Ontario,  "Oorah!".  First Place winners

Dancers from the Canadian Dance Company under the direction of Allain Lupien.

2017 Qualifier

Larissa Leung, from Ontario, qualified to attend the 2017 TOP 5 GALA, but was unable to attend due to a conflict in her schedule.  We're still proud of her and know she would have done well.

COVID 19 UPDATE

We understand concerns about COVID-19 Coronavirus are top of mind, and we want to be share the information about what we are doing to prepare for the World Championships and the World Dance Challenge.  


Many of the fall IDO Championships are planning on going ahead as usual,  and Bonnie Dyer, our Director, is in constant communication with the IDO and will keep us updated the full details as outlined by IDO concerning the implications of the virus on our events.   


The championships we are attending are still many months away are we are optimistic that things will settle down before then.  We will follow the recommendations and are confident that IDO will follow any WHO guidelines and recommendations.   


We will monitor the situation and report any updates.

world cups

OPEN TO ALL DANCERS - NO AUDITION REQUIRED *

*for most World Cups - unless you want to be part of a Team Canada group


THESE ARE WORLD CUPS, NOT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS


Team Canada Dance takes TEAMS to the World Championships, Commonwealth Cup Dance Championships, World Dance Challenge,  and selected events.  For WORLD CUP events, any dancer may enter and represent Canada, however, Team Canada does audition for groups that we take (for example, to Commonwealth).  You may still enter your own groups/solos/duos and so on - you do not need to be a part of a Team Canada group to take part.


Please contact Bonnie@cdo-online.org for more information.
