HAPPY HOUR

Kyla Piscopink

Experience the joy of movement without the stress of formal dance class. Happy Hour begins with classical pilates mat exercises, followed by a ballet + fitness barre, and finishes with movement across the floor and in the center. Individual creative voices are nurtured while “following the leader”, meaning there is no pressure to memorize choreography or worry about technique. Happy Hour encourages you to experience the beauty of individuality, celebrate your body and to simply have fun. All levels and abilities welcome.

IMPROV DANCE & JAM

Cricket Desmarais
[All ages & levels / previous dance experience NOT required]

No need to fret about technique & choreographic memorization — the focus here is on self-expression & fun, facilitated through a variety of creative prompts that help generate spontaneous movement in the moment in a safe & judgement-free zone. Enhance your physical awareness, explore your range of movement & expand your self confidence with improvisational exercises, partner work & full-on improv dance jams.

GROOVE: AUTISM MOVEMENT THERAPY

Cricket Desmarais
[For children 7-12 years old with autism and their parents, teachers & paraprofessionals]

Give your child a sense of freedom & space to grow in this judgement-free, structured environment that supports them in becoming comfortable moving their bodies and being in a group setting.
