dance Immersion welcomes Timea Wharton-Suri as New Program Director!

The dance Immersion Team is thrilled to announce our newly appointed Program Director, Timea Wharton Suri.

Timea is an arts executive, curator, and producer. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from York University, and a Master of Business Administration and Arts and Media Management Graduate Diploma from Schulich School of Business.

Timea performed for several years with dance companies such as Ballet Creole and Ronald Taylor Dance before opening a dance/fitness studio – one of the first that now proliferate in urban centres.

She has produced events for TO Live, Holla Jazz, Toronto Comic Arts Festival, Toronto Dance Theatre, the Remarkable Women Awards, and others. Timea worked for the Dancer Transition Resource Centre, TVOntario, and Toronto Arts Council (TAC), where she managed the dance and literary arts portfolios. At TAC, she worked with Canada’s largest communities of dancers and writers to administer a $2.5 million grants budget, was the architect of the What’s Your Story? And Toronto Lit Up programs, and co-developed the Long-Term Dance Projects, Cultural Leaders Lab, Performing Arts Facilities, and Animating Toronto Parks programs.
