    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

    1st Annual Lights Dance Festival - A night of experimental dance films & original work by Momentum Dance Toronto!

    Lights Dance Festival brings together the vibrant dance and film communities of Ontario to celebrate the beauty of contemporary arts. This year, Lights, in collaboration with Choifilms and Momentum Dance will showcase a collection of original dance cinema and live performances choreographed by local talents.

    This is only the first year of Lights Dance Festival, but this annual event will continue to screen high-calibre dance films and offer live performances and workshops to develop a stronger arts community in Canada. Lights aspires to bridge the gap between creators and lovers of dance, and that between dance and cinema. Its mission is to spread awareness of dance media, celebrate diversity and all types of dance form, and make great art more accessible to all.

    A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go to support Momentum Dance Toronto!
