ABOUT US

Stratus is more than a dance competition. It is about learning how to set goals and achieve them. As dance teachers, choreographers, adjudicators and event planners, Dani and Victoria are uniquely qualified to provide the opportunities for dancers to grow, while gaining vital skills, that will serve them both inside and outside their studios.

ABOUT CAMP OOCH

We are proud to be partnering with Camp Ooch - a magical place where kids with cancer can just be kids. In 1983 an ambitious group of volunteers banded together to form a summer camp unlike any other in Canada to exclusively serve children with cancer. A camp where every child, no matter how debilitating their illness, would be provided an opportunity to explore enriching, challenging, and fun experiences.

We want dancers who attend our competition to know that they can create real, positive changes in their community. Proceeds from every piece of Stratus merchandise are donated directly to Camp Ooch. We also offer opportunities for dancers and their families get the chance to volunteer with Camp Ooch either up at camp or in Toronto. We encourage and provide the tools for dancers to organize their own fundraising event and Stratus will help you organize it! Our goal for 2018 is to raise enough funds to help send one child to camp.
