YOUNG DANCERS AT HOME
We are offering a new extended version of our virtual Young Dancers’ Program classes starting this September through December 2021. Classes are offered as a series of two sessions per month, which includes a live-streamed video to dance along with, and a LIVE Zoom class with our instructors. These sessions are designed for a wide range of ages (3-17). All sessions run from 9:30-10:15am EDT.
During the live-streamed videos, students will have the opportunity to ask instructors questions and offer comments via live chat. During our LIVE Zoom classes, dancers will be led by one of our instructors, through movement that is based on the previous live-streamed video. Students will be able to see their instructors, and if they wish, they can also be seen by them!
The School of Toronto Dance Theatre presents We Dance, a dance project celebrating inclusive dance practices with individuals who are differently abled. The class is open to youth and adults aged 16+ with mixed abilities.
The class is led by Michelle Silagy, director of the Young Dancers’ Program at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and a Master DanceAbility® Teacher. Each one hour class explores creative movement in a supportive and positive environment, suitable for individuals with diverse learning styles. No dance or movement background required – just bring yourself!
Classes are at Canada’s National Ballet School, 400 Jarvis Street.
We Dance is presented by The School of Toronto Dance Theatre in partnership with Canada’s National Ballet School, one of the world’s foremost training institutions for aspiring young dancers and teachers.
