Since its inception in 2007, Dance Migration began as an idea to share the inspiration that Brazil gave to Artistic Director Adrianna Yanuziello. Having left Canada to continue her studies and exploration in her dance field she was captivated by the spirit and energy of the Brazilian culture.
Dance Migration formed by gathering together fellow dance friends in Toronto to share a little bit of Adrianna’s discovery.
The company today has blossomed having produced full-length dance works in some of Toronto’s most prestigious theatres. Recent shows include GAIA, Terra Brasil and Os Elementos at Fleck Dance Theatre.
The company also performs at the corporate level being featured in Toronto’s top festivals such as Salsa on St Clair, Luminato, Guelph Jazz Festival, Afro Fest, Brazil Fest, and Harbourfront Center’s Hot and Spicy Festival. Dance Migration has gained international recognition, having performed throughout the Netherlands, Brazil, Ecuador, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Belgium, Canada and the USA.
Dance Migration also offers some of the best training in Brazilian dance in Canada. Adrianna Yanuziello has been returning to Brazil to deepen her research into Afro Brazilian traditions but also to continue to enrich her craft in Brazilian Samba and Orixa dance Movement. She currently has been travelling to and from Brazil for over 13 years.
Currently during the Pandemic Dance Migration has adapted it’s school online holding daily classes in Brazilian dance. Dance Migration is a direct source to training in authentic Samba and studying about the history and essence of Brazilian dance. For more info please visit dancemigration.com
