Registration is now open for the Choreographic Process for a Large Space workshop.
In this two-part workshop participants will be given a crash course in creating dance choreography for a large space. In the first session, December 2, participants will explore the guidelines for creating choreography through a variety of activities and will begin to find inspiration to create choreography of their own. In the second session, December 16, students will return with a short choreography of their own creation based on the guidelines explored in the first session.
Participants will present their choreography to their peers and receive feedback to continue to develop their piece. Participants may work as a soloist or in a group, if working in a group participants should attend with their group pre-established. Please come dressed to dance, choreographies in all dance styles are welcome.
This workshop will be facilitated by Kayla Shaw – Associate Director of Arts Education – Dance, Confederation Centre of the Arts and Julia Sauve – dance umbrella Co-Founder, Artist, and Choreographer.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
