Toronto, ON M4Y 2G6
Battery Dance and Canada’s National Ballet School believe in the value of dance to communicate, inspire, and to cross linguistic, geographic and social boundaries. Through Dancing to Connect, we seek to make dance accessible to all and build mutual respect across economic, ethnic and religious divides.
Dancing to Connect promotes teamwork, builds self-esteem and opens up the channels of creativity. The workshop also fosters deep, learning experiences, where participants get to actively engage in their personal discovery and draw meaning by exploring and addressing global challenges.
Led by Battery Dance Teaching Artists, this FREE collaborative dance workshop aims to empower participants aged 14-24 to express their individual creativity and share meaningful personal stories through movement.
Through their participation in the workshop, participants will:
- Further develop their self-confidence, teamwork, communication, and social and emotional skills
- Increase awareness of the important benefits of regular physical activity
- Build cross-cultural friendships and networks
- Work with diverse dance artists
- Improve English language skills
- Create five new dance work that tells their stories while addressing NATO’s principles of security and mutual cooperation in ensuring peace
