ProArteDanza is a repertory contemporary-dance company driven by the principle: Passion in Performance. For 16 years, the company has shared this outlook with its growing and diverse audiences, students, and artists through performances, community engagement, and training programs in its home of Toronto and the GTA.
ProArteDanza’s vision is led by the dynamic team of Artistic Director Roberto Campanella and Artistic Associate, Robert Glumbek. Since its inception, ProArteDanza has garnered a reputation for producing performances of high artistic standards and production value while nurturing process and artistic development. Our mission is to bring excellence from the studio to the stage.
Creating and commission original works by Canadian and international choreographers;
Remount/revisit successful works from our repertoire;
Acquire works from the repertoire of other companies or choreographers;
Create access to a diverse public through training and performance presentations;
Provide a safe, equitable environment for artistic exploration; and
Be a leader in our realm of small-scale performing arts organizations.
Our vision springs from the desire for human and social connection. We strive to create an environment in which artists, students, audiences, and the dance community at large, can fully embrace and experience the phenomenon of human response and artistic creation in every way.
New productions are vital to the company’s future, helping to engage our audiences, raise the company’s profile in the community and strengthening connections with both our public and private funding partners. Original works and work new to our audiences excite our artists and our public and lead to invitations to tour to new communities, expanding our season and keeping our dancers in performance.
Since inception, 41 original dance works have been created and presented by ProArteDanza, featureing commissions by both established and emerging Canadian choreographers as well as repeat international collaborators. Highlights include:
