Aspiring Young Dancer Campaign 

This holiday season, we are launching the Aspiring Young Dancer Campaign to raise $25,000 in support of The Citadel Dance Program – a program that provides weekly ballet and tap classes (new!) to children and youth living in Regent Park and the surrounding area. This year, we ask you to consider helping us continue to bring the joy of dance to children in our community.

Currently, 58 bright young students are enrolled in our program, with 90% proudly supported by scholarship. As a primarily scholarship-based program, a relatively small gift can make an enormous difference. A gift of just $150 funds the training of one our youngest students for an entire semester and opens the door to a world of dance – a door that might otherwise remain closed. 

Many people and elements go into running The Citadel Dance Program. From our amazing teaching staff, to our lovely Citadel Dance Program administrative assistant, to the distribution of free dancewear and shoes, to our bi-annual recitals, resources are needed for all aspects of the program to keep it running smoothly. 

As we head into 2020, please consider making a contribution to a program that empowers youth through the gift of dance. Even a small amount can make a lasting impact.

$50 – Contribute to The Citadel Dance Program 

$150 – A full semester for our youngest students (3–4 yrs) 

$375 – A full semester for an aspiring youth (11–15 yrs) 


$ Custom amount – Tailor a custom amount to help us reach our goal even faster

Please support Citadel + Compagnie

Citadel + Compagnie is an award-winning Toronto-based professional dance organization that creates, produces and presents works on local, national and international scales from its home base in a former Salvation Army Citadel in Regent Park. Since 2007, C+C has renovated, revamped and transformed The Citadel into a place where artists rehearse, create and perform and where the community learns, explores and shares.

Your thoughtful gift in any amount helps us strengthen and deepen our impact here on our doorstep in Regent Park, across Canada and beyond.

Our outreach mission of bringing art to the people continues, and we aspire for The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance to be an integral part of the community. You can play a key role in helping us make this happen. DONATE NOW

Help us get our new works from the studio to the stage.

One of the most important aspects of C+C that defines who we are, is the work that is created within our walls.  Your contribution to artistic advancement will help C +C explore, invent and share the depth of our creations with the world at large. In 2017 artistic director Laurence Lemieux is bringing a new work to the stage. Jusqu’à Vimy retraces the lives of seven local soldiers who lost their lives at the battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917, while our resident choreographer, James Kudelka, is going back to the studio to begin a new creation, tentatively titled, The Machine Stops.

Help us maintain The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance

Our new Lindy Green Wing gives artists and community members a safe and peaceful place to be, before and after their performances. We are still short a few thousand dollars of our goal of $150,000. There is still time to purchase a brick for $500, or half a brick for $250.

Help us fund our yearly projects, tours and general C+C operations.

Kind words from a recent donor: “I am in awe of C+C’s resilience, commitment and passion for all that you do for the dance community and for Regent Park. You have made a difference in so many people’s lives, both in the arts and surrounding communities through endless hours of hard work and diligence towards progress and opportunity for all artists. I will always support you! I look forward to seeing C+C complete each goal one grand jeté at a time.”
