Program Description:

The Swallowing Clouds program was created in 2009, in partnership with the Toronto Public Library for youth, ages 7 to 11.  Swallowing Clouds nurtures creative process and discovers the dance stories that live in ourselves. We are professional dancers, poets and musicians that work in the community.  We guide participants through an inspiring creative journey. Offering a window into the world of art-making, Swallowing Clouds is an opportunity for self-expression, sharing and most importantly, a chance to have fun. This program promises to be a positive and memorable experience for all.

We’re looking for youth who enjoy movement, music and words. 

No previous arts (dance, music, visual or theatre) experience required.

Fruit snacks will be provided.
