GTT Executive Producer, Justin Boccitto, created and began curating The Choreographer's Canvas in 2008. The event became a home for almost 100 choreographers and over 800 dancers of all genres to showcase their work in a fully produced evening of dance. The Canvas has played many venues including The Connelly Theater, Manhattan Movement and Arts Center, The 92nd Street Y, and also performed in Nashville, Tennessee.
