Conference 2011: Travel and Accomodations

The 2011 SDHS Conference Dance Dramaturgy: Catalyst, Perspective and Memory will take place June 23-26 in Toronto, Canada, at The University of Toronto’s St. George Campus, known for its historic architecture and inviting green spaces in the heart of the city and York University’s Keele St. Campus which is located in the northern suburbs. Toronto is a vibrant city with a rich culture of performing arts, featuring a range of significant galleries, museums, theatres and festivals. It is also one of the world’s most multicultural cities, offering a wealth of diverse experiences. We hope you will find your stay in Toronto enjoyable and memorable. The first two days of the conference will take place at York University’s Keele Campus (June 23 and 24) and the second two days will take place downtown at U of T. We highly recommend you find accommodations downtown near U of T and take Toronto’s transit (TTC) to York University for the first two days. Toronto’s TTC is accessible, runs regularly, is safe and the trip normally takes no longer than 45 minutes.
