Dance Animal: Toronto sees a group of Toronto misfits from all walks of life, each being recruited by the mysterious Dance Tiger to join Dance Animal’s Toronto Tribe. As each Animal shares their story with the audience, we discover how their lives have changed for the better, now that they have met their ultimate Tribe, and realized their true calling: to express themselves through DANCE. Dance Animal: Toronto is a love-letter to, and reflection of a city, Toronto. It is inspired by present-day Toronto’s pop culture, music, sports, politics and more. Dance Animal: Toronto’s sketches are written by Canadian Comedy Award nominee Anders Yates. Monologues are written by the Animals and dramaturged by Robin Henderson. The show is directed and choreographed by Robin Henderson.
