Our Mission is to provide an educational forum for dance students and dance educators as they develop an appreciation for the art form of dance through collaborative dance creation, performance and workshops.Meet Our Adjudicators
“EDUCATE, ENCOURAGE and INSPIRE"
Teachers accompany students to OSSDF to share their original dance compositions with friendly and empowering adjudicators, dance artists/professionals and students of like mind from across the province.
OSSDF provides opportunities to learn, perform and increase skill levels, creativity and confidence by working with this beautiful art expression in collaborative workshops led by amazing leaders."
May 7th, 2020 marks the day that OSSDF DANCEFEST 2020 would have happened at the Scotiabank Conference Centre in Niagara Falls. To celebrate the success of our dancers and choreographers from previous DANCEFEST events, we are sharing a few of the most recent OSSDF Montages created by our incredible videographer, Jordan Hill of HillsFilms.
We hope these montages help bring a smile to your face during these uncertain times and remind you of your passion for dance and how much you have learned from challenging yourself to be your best YOU - as a dancer, choreographer and human being. And, even though at this time we are isolated from one another, find comfort that we are united by our love to dance and our desire to further develop our instrument and creativity.
Together in spirit, we will watch these videos, recall the friends we have made, the lessons we have learned and the FUN we had at Ontario Secondary School Dancefest.
See you all next year at OSSDF 2021!
Coming soon! GRADS will be able to share their final dance solo with us by sending their recorded choreography to their teacher for review before posting. If you're interested in submitting your own Dance video click the link below, let us know in the message box that you want to submit a video, and a member of our staff will be in touch with you.
