About TDI

Founded in 2021 by Aidan Muth and Jennah Paron, previously known as ‘Day of Dance,’ The Dance Initiative was created to offer freelance dance programming to dancers across Western Canada.

Western Canada Freelance Dance Programming

Day of Dance

TDI’s Day of Dance and their highly accredited faculty are ready to come dance with you! Established in 2019, Day of Dance is a 2-day travelling dance masterclass program for school aged dancers. TDI’s Day of Dance event is an intensive style workshop where dancers will take classes in Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Hip-Hop. Advanced dancers will also get the opportunity to further their knowledge and experience the world of auditioning during our mock audition for a pre-professional training program.

Artists in Action

Artists in Action (AIA) is a sessional program geared towards advanced competitive dancers while preparing for their competition season. Dancers will work alongside up-in-coming local choreographers, and fellow dancers from Alberta to put on a live show at the end of the program using the tools and choreography they have learnt throughout the program. AIA stands out because of it’s emphasis on high-performance dance training while connecting with the Albertan dance community.
