WORKSHOPS

Express Dance

Express Dance is an inclusive, simple approach to bringing the joy of dance into any classroom.*

*We've adapted Express Dance workshops to be an interactive, creative experience delivered via Zoom. The workshops are taught by a number of professionally trained dance teachers.

 

Express Dance has been taught to more than 40,000 learners and teachers across Ontario and helps unleash the potential for physical expression latent within each and every individual.

EXPRESS DANCE is ideal for your classroom because it:

  • Supports current Ontario Arts curriculum guidelines for dance education

  • Encourages students to discover new ways of learning dance using their own movement vocabulary

  • Provides a supportive and fun environment that is inclusive of diverse personal and cultural expression, ESL learners, and all physical abilities

  • Promotes good mental health & emotional well-being

"Everyone from our group felt energized after this online activity today. Thank you for making it possible to dance and interact with the artists at home."

Students will work with text, image, and soundscapes to trigger intuitive and impulse response from dances of all abilities and experience. 

Taught by a number of professionally trained dance teachers, students learn improvisation techniques either as a solo, or interactive between two people on various screens, harnessing the technology of platforms that allow multiple screen conversations such as Zoom.

 

This workshop offers extensive foundations for movement improvisation that crosses the various worlds of Theatre, Dance and Performance Art.

DANCE IMPROVISATION is ideal for your classroom because it:

  • Supports current Ontario Arts curriculum guidelines for dance education

  • Encourages students to discover new ways of learning dance using their own movement vocabulary

Students develop creative and critical thinking skills by learning how to create their own short dance films. 

Using his expertise as the creator/co-creator of over 19 dance films, Allen Kaeja offers a unique opportunity for students to develop skills and gain experience in the relatively underdeveloped, and hugely promising field, of dance for the screen.

 

Students will work to create a number of short dance films and the workshop will ideally culminate in an informal screening of the work.

DANCE FILM workshops are ideal for your classroom because it:

  • Supports current Ontario Arts curriculum guidelines for dance and media arts

  • Provides hands-on exercises that explore two moving mediums, dance and film

  • Promotes critical thinking with discussions, screenings, and the filming of choreographic work

  • Encourages students to explore technical, practical and artistic challenges involved in producing a dance film

 

"I learned the basics of filmmaking including framing, editing guidelines, and story portrayal. Allen has a love and for dance film and a highly developed practice which grounded this workshop. He was able to take his high level of knowledge and deliver it in an accessible manner."

- Kathleen Rea, Choreographer/Participant

Workshops and pricing can be modified to fit your needs.

Extended or weekly workshops can be arranged to accommodate students' ongoing creative and physical education.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF TRADITIONAL LAND

Kaeja d’Dance would like to acknowledge that we are situated upon traditional territories. Our artists, collaborators, staff and team are grateful to be creating art on this land that has been nurtured by recorded and unrecorded human activity for by thousands of years. We honour and respect the traditional lands and waterways of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation. We are in the 'Dish with One Spoon' territory - a treaty between these nations reflecting a commitment to share the territory and protect the land. We also recognize the enduring presence of diverse Indigenous peoples on this land.
