Miriam Adams 2009The Market Gallery presents an exhibition curated by Dance Collection Danse, Canada's largest archives and research centre for theatrical dance history.

Running until July 2, 2011, Dancing Through Time: Toronto's Dance History 1900-1980 explores the development of the city's dance scene from influential touring artists to vaudevillians to the ballet and modern dance booms to the diversity of dance forms present in the city. It features costumes, photographs, playbills, souvenir programs, posters, designs, and more.

Among the artifacts are rare silk stockings from the 1920s, sketches of the Ballets Russes by Grant Macdonald, a mask that toured to the 1936 Cultural Olympiad in Berlin, costumes worn by famed National Ballet dancers David Adams and Lois Smith, costume jewellery, and much more. This exhibit provides a rare opportunity to see artifacts not available in other museums. Visitors will get to know some of the personalities of a dynamic art form that has contributed to the city's cultural vitality.
