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.
You are warmly invited to join opportunities to dance. Groups this autumn include an all abilities dance group and a new integrated dance collective. As well, feedback is invited about what type of dance initiative you would like to participate in this coming year.
Recent initiatives include a mixed-abilities dance group, 55+ dance group, women’s dance group with people who are refugees and newcomers, and dancing together (all genders queer social dance) sessions.
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 for all ages.
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.
If you are curious and would like to stay in the loop about opportunities to dance – even if right now is not the right time for you to try a class – please feel free to sign up for updates:
Another project we have been involved in is working with other dance artists to form an islands network for collaborative dance, connecting community dance practitioners in the region.
Thank-you for stopping by this website. Please be in touch 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
