1. Toronto: Let your inner ballerina twirl free!
From July 11 to September 2, pop into Canada's Design Museum, The Design Exchange for two exhibits that will have you making pas de bourré around the room.
In honor of the National Ballet of Canada's 60th anniversary, the museum is hosting "60 Years of Designing the Ballet", a retrospective that features some of the company's archival tutus going back to the 1950s, as well as cherished set items like the Nutcracker doll from The Nutcracker. Cool features include an interactive barre station where visitors can try on tutus and learn basic ballet poses.
Included in the anniversary festivities is the Tutu Project exhibit, which showcases 60 original tutu designs by school children, famous Canadian designers like David Dixon, artists like Julie Moon, and many more.
