To educate and increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of dance by providing performances and opportunities in public places, performance venues, seniors homes, community centres, and educational institutions and by providing seminars on topics relating to such performances.

So what do we do?
princess productions is the umbrella organization for both tiger princess dance projects and dance: made in canada/fait au canada. As a whole, we facilitate the creation and dissemination of art and are invested in building culture within communities. We value dance and movement as an important component of communication that allows us to understand ourselves, share with each other, and express ourselves as multifaceted beings. Separately, we are on two unique missions that add to the vibrant dance sector in different capacities.

As an immigrant, I’m in awe of this glorious country and am grateful for the contributions and stewardship of these lands by the peoples that went before me. This land that we create our art on holds thousands of years of human history and on behalf of princess productions’ board, our artists, our artistic and production team, we pay respect and acknowledge the First peoples who have been living on these lands for thousands of years.
It can be said that making art is the summation and expression of who we are, and it is only through recognizing our history that we have the opportunity to create and share our art with you.
We recognize that our work takes place on the traditional territories of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee, and the Wendat peoples and is home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples from across Turtle Island. Please join me in respecting and honouring the traditional caretakers of this land.
In my efforts to learn more about where I currently lay my head and live, my research has led me to different resources that I would like to share with you. Please feel free to check out the resources below to support you in your efforts towards reconciliation. No research is exhaustive or perfect. There’s more out there to learn, appreciate and get to know. If i’ve made any errors, I apologize and welcome your feedback – firstname.lastname@example.org.
