Dance Ontario Announces Change in Leadership

Dance Ontario Announces Change in Leadership

Longstanding Executive Director Rosslyn Jacob Edwards will retire as of the end of March 2020. Leadership of the organization will pass to Amy Hampton who has served as Program Manager for several years.

“I want to thank the Board of Directors who have been tremendously supportive over the years,” says Rosslyn Jacob Edwards. “The Dance Ontario community and its wonderfully talented artists have been a constant inspiration making my time here a gratifying experience. While I will miss working across this sector, I am excited to see what lies ahead for Dance Ontario!”

Amy Hampton will take over as Executive Director in April 2020. She is a graduate of L'École Supérieure de Danse du Québec and was a member of Le Jeune Ballet du Québec, performing works by international choreographers in both Quebec and France. She has performed nationally and internationally with CORPUS and has danced with many Toronto companies including The Chimera Project, Kaeja d’Dance, tiger princess dance projects, Anandam Dance Theatre and Larchaud Dance Project. Independently, she has originated roles in works by Kathleen Rea, William Yong, Lydia Wagerer, Keiko Ninomiya, Meagan O’Shea, Lincoln Shand, Avinoam Silverman and Michael Caldwell and participated in a three-year collaboration between choreographer Robert Desrosiers and the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir.
