The Oakville Centre actively engages in outreach activities that bring the arts out of the theatre and into the community. These programs serve to connect the residents of Oakville through the arts. Our outreach activities include:
Ontario Dances promotes dance across numerous Ontario communities, seeking to get people engaged, interested and invested in dance at a local level in our province. The program aims to increase the range and diversity of dance available to communities in Ontario. The OCPA promotes local dance shows and workshops.
