|Given the evolving situation surrounding COVID-19 and the advice from public health officials regarding the need to maintain physical distance, our in-person Recreational Programs will continue to be suspended until further notice as we strategize how best to engage with our young and adult recreational dancers to provide programming while ensuring their health and well-being.
We are currently working with the City of Toronto to secure permits to hold a short term of outdoor dance classes for the Fall 2020 term. If you would like more information and/or updates on these classes, please send us an email at [email protected]
Our adult recreational program of contemporary dance classes is designed for individuals who want to experience the joy of movement through contemporary dance. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings. They are suitable for dancers aged 16+, with any level of experience (including complete beginners), and offer you the chance to learn in a stimulating and supportive environment.
Focusing on use of breath, weight, energy, flexibility, and the thrill of jumping and moving through space, these classes include work based on the techniques of Martha Graham and José Limón, as well as other contemporary styles. Participants experience increased strength, flexibility, and endurance, as well as improved body awareness and self-confidence. Students learn from inspiring teachers and dance to live accompaniment.
We have three distinct class levels to best fit your movements experience:
- Fundamentals of Contemporary Dance I: for newcomers to dance
- Fundamentals of Contemporary Dance II: for those ready to go beyond the basics
- Contemporary Technique: for the intermediate/advanced dancer
“Our classes are designed to develop strength and self-confidence. Dancers have the opportunity to enjoy movement for its own sake, and to engage their expressive potential.”– Patricia Fraser, Artistic Director
Please note that these are not professional level classes.
