Rhythm Performing Arts is a multicultural organization , unifying everyone under one art form: DANCE. Our mission is to promote artistic and creative expression through dance and diverse performing arts at many private and public events, and festivals all across the GTA, while encouraging community, diversity, teamwork, and leadership.
Founded in 2012, Rhythm Performing Arts was a student-run organization at the University of Toronto Mississauga incorporating dance styles such as Contemporary, Bollywood, Hip Hop, Jazz, Indo-Jazz, Latin, Indian Classical and many more. Through many years of growth, Rhythm has spread the beauty of dance to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities by combining the flare of performance artistry with dedicated technical instruction and training from experienced choreographers. Rhythm has expanded incredibly since it’s establishment, training 50-70 aspiring dancers and performers yearly, providing students with diverse and valuable opportunities to build full Broadway experiences; encompassing backstage management, costume design, acting, writing and dance. By providing a fast paced and ever-changing experience, we cultivate the many skills necessary to work in real-world professional productions and companies.
