Expressions Summer Dance Camp

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of conducting a creative movement workshop for an inclusionary dance camp for kids aged 9-16 with physical and mobility challenges.

It was an amazing morning! Each child had a unique way of interpreting music and movement tasks. We explored movement based on speed, shapes, textures, words, and environments.

I left feeling invigorated and like I had in fact been a student for those hours. Sometimes we don't realize how narrowly we define something, such as dance, until it is reshaped and expanded before our very eyes.

Expressions Summer Dance Camp was coordinated by Pam Morgan, a graduate of York University's dance program and occupational therapist. Pam trained in dance right here in Barrie at Huronia Dance Centre.
