Have you ever wanted to try ballet or contemporary dance but felt intimidated or have done it but didn’t like the elitism? This dance workshop shares the joys of dance & its technical aspects in an affirming environment!
Taught by Sze-Yang Ade-Lam, a founding member of ILL NANA/DiverseCity Dance Company, Feel Ur Body is an 4-week series of dance classes that focuses on feeling your body while learning dance. Sze-Yang works to create a judgement free space where everybody is valued and positive energy and affirmation are encouraged, so that people feel more comfortable exploring dance and movement while connecting with their bodies. This will be done through the medium of Ballet & Contemporary Dance that is heavily influenced by the energetic awareness of Kung Fu and musicality of Hip Hop & Street Styles. This class welcomes those who are completely new to dance and people with prior dance experience.
Each class will begin with warm ups, stretching & body conditioning, leading to ballet and contemporary barre exercises and movement in the centre of the room, and conclude with movement that travels through the space! Some of the benefits people may experience through this workshop but are not limited to are:
- Developing a connected relationship to mind, body, energy, and dancing spirit
- Greater health and well being
- Growth in strength, flexibility, and fitness!
