Ace Dance Theatre

ACE DANCE THEATRE - Artistic Directors: Liana Bellissimo & Tara Pillon

ACE Dance Theatre is a new and compelling contemporary dance company based out of Toronto. Founded by Liana Bellissimo and Tara Pillon, the company bridges the gap between authentic expression and physical performance. ACE Dance Theatre captivates audiences by showcasing and nurturing both the athlete and the artist within the dancer. The company prides itself on its technical versatility drawing influences from ballet, modern, jazz, and urban techniques. ACE Dance Theatre collaborates with both local and external artists contributing to a unique and diverse company repertoire. We provide dancers, choreographers, and designers the opportunity to flourish, create, share and inspire. 

ACE Dance Theatre is at a crucial point in its development. In collaboration with many talented dancers, choreographers, and dance educators, we aim to push boundaries in our dance community and to bring compelling performances to a wide audience. Producing a high-quality show is costly with regards to fees for dance artists, choreographers, rehearsal directors, production crew, costumes, designers, theatre and studio rental space, etc. These fees are not covered by ticket sales and there is no current method of funding to produce these performances other than through sponsorships and donations. 

In our partnership with Shoot-For-The-Moon, any contribution you make to our organization will go directly to funding our company productions including artist fees and overall production fees. Please see below for details:

  • For every monthly contribution under $100 a month, or a one-time donation less than $1,200, Shot-for-the-Moon has pledged to match 10% of your contribution.
