We know that you see, hear and experience a lot of things in the world around you. And we know that you have your own unique perspective.
Our classes for young women ages 12 – 18 have a focus on exploring social justice issues. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the world around you, the issues that matter to you, and explore them through dance and creating together.
At Dandelion, we will show you how to use dance to bring YOUR OWN IDEAS to life – in and out of the classroom. Yes, you will have a space to create, explore dance and movement, learn about choreography, set and costume design. You will also take part in activities outside of the studio to help you connect with your fellow dancers, learn about your community, and inspire your own creative process!
Here is a glimpse of what our Teen class did this year outside of dance time:
- explored the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada through the Blanket Exercise
- went to the Bytowne Cinema to watch an independent film about the environment
- enjoyed a wonderful New Year’s dinner out together, and celebrated each other’s birthdays throughout the school year
Our teachers are always looking for learning opportunities for our students. They will also help you learn more about the topics that matter to you so that you can create fantastic, unique dance works. All you have to do is ask.
Each week, you will create and share your own work. And at our annual year-end performance at Centrepointe Theatre, you will have a chance to share your creations with friends, family and our dance community.
The best part is that you can join us even if you have never danced before! Our classes are for everyone.
