How it works:
The Rehearsal will be held the day of the event, only a couple hours prior. Our choreographers will be going over the full routine with the group, and we will run through it a couple times.

We will then have an hour and half break, in which participants can get something to eat, hang out, and make their way to Dundas Square for 9:30pm.

The main event will be done while CTV is doing their live feed for their newscast. Also, this will be filmed for an upcoming TV show we’ve been helping out on! So if you like lights, cameras and dancing, come out!

The dancing and fun times will continue after the actual dance ends. Everyone is invited for a large after-party once the event ends, in Dundas Square. Beverages and snacks will be served, a DJ will be playing and some prizes will be given out! So stick around, and chill out with your new found friends!

Please join and invite all of your friends! You won’t want to miss this =)

Spotlight on the Red and White

September 14th, 2009 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

This past Saturday, Improv in Toronto had one of their largest event ever. At around 2pm, a small car was stopped by some very tough looking bodyguards on bloor street.

The next eight minutes were just a blast.

If you happen to witness the event, we would love to hear from you and your stories, either as a participant or as a bystander. Comment on this thread so you can share your viewpoints to the world!

Algorithm March

September 11th, 2009 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

The Algorithm March is a song with an associated dance based on the Japanese children’s television series PythagoraSwitch. The song itself is a round, with one voice singing a line and another voice echoing that same line shortly after, continuing until the song ends. The dance follows the same pattern.

Done on PythagoraSwitch, the dance is the focus of a whimsical and entertaining skit. Done in the middle of Toronto’s Kensington Market with onlookers not having a clue what they’re seeing, that’s another story. Many looked on with perplexed gazes, maybe even fear, while others were amused and even applauded at the end.

Scroll down to watch us perform the Algorithm March.

Pink Bra Flash Mob

September 11th, 2009 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

On August 26th, 2009, we showed our support for breast cancer patients, survivors, and researchers by showing—ahem—a different kind of support. We stormed through Dundas Square wearing pink bras and carrying posters and brochures to help spread the word on breast cancer awareness. And yes, both women and men were involved.

Watch the video below for pink lingerie, confused reactions, some smiles, and even some interesting choreographed dancing.

Subway Dance Party 2.5

September 11th, 2009 | Posted by Improv in Toronto in Completed Missions - ()

We decided that instead of having our two major subway events in the winter (The other being the No Pants Subway Ride) we would move the Subway Dance Party to later in the year. Unfortunately we had already had this years Subway Dance Party and you can’t have an annual event twice in a year.

Or can you? Instead of waiting a year and a half for the next Subway Dance Party we decided to have a continuation of the winter event.
