Would you like to explore movement in a supportive setting, laugh and dust off some stress? Do you know of a group who would enjoy being active and creative together?
Creative Momentum facilitates dance for well-being and building community, for ages 4 to 100+, and is visiting in the homelands of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples.
We work in collaboration with around 15 communities. For examples of where we work please see the organizations page.
You are warmly invited to join upcoming opportunities to dance, including the Creative Movers (an all abilities, mostly 55+, dance group), and an all abilities dance group at a local organization. Once or twice a year there is a women’s dance group for people who are refugees and newcomers.
No prior dance experience is needed, and there is no “wrong” way to move in these sessions.
As well, programs are available for groups of all sorts, including: Dancing for Wellbeing custom sessions with adults and youth with diverse abilities, Dance for Brain Health and Move to Music with older adults, and Dance Games with children.
Sessions include a variety of activities for moving in new ways, releasing tension, connecting and having fun. Participants say that the sessions have helped them shift out of feeling stuck, stiff, lonely, and shy.
In collaboration with other organizations and dance artists, we are involved in fundraising for a project on Building a Community of Practice in Inclusive-Integrated Dance, including forming an islands network for collaborative dance. Donations are being collected through the Dance Alchemy project with the Victoria Arts Council.
If you are curious and would like to stay in the loop – even if right now is not the right time for you to try a class – please feel free to sign up for updates:
Thank-you for stopping by this website. Let me know if you have any questions, feedback or ideas – It would be lovely to hear from you.
Victoria, BC, gratefully visiting in the homelands of the Lekwungen Peoples and Esquimalt and Songhees Nations
