About Dance Together Project:
On a mission to facilitate enjoyable dance experiences for everybody, regardless of skill level or variations in physical ability, Dance Together Project is about exceptionally fun and refreshingly inclusive dance workshops for adults. Project founder Katya Kuznetsova is an award-winning dance artist, educator and cultural producer focusing on building communities through dance. She designs and leads dance workshops and choreographies for beginners, as well as special workshops for the elderly, wheelchair movers and people with visual impairments. Through Dance Together Project, Katya creates dance with “non-dancers” in a way that embraces vulnerability, builds confidence and opens access to the joy of human connection. Since 2019, together with several Toronto dance and visual artists, Katya has been co-producing the Dance Together Festival, which offers free open-air community dance workshops and events that celebrate positive and accessible dance experiences. Come dance together in Unionville!
September 24th and 25th
11 am -11:45 am - Move to Music
This sit or stand class is all about getting to the music in the body and letting the body and mind dance together! Each session includes a rhythmic but gentle warm-up and stretch followed by dance elements that can all be done while standing or sitting. Katya integrates elements from several dance styles and provides an example and general structure, encouraging each person to move in the ways that work for their body and mobility. The music includes Brazilian drumming, Cuban, Big band, Jazz, and Waltz.
12 noon - 12:45 pm - Dance Together Parade
Learn some basic partner moves that you can apply to any song! Yes, it will help you with your two left feet, and more! You can bring a friend, a partner or family member or meet a new friend there. No prior dance experience necessary. It will be so fun you'd want to keep on dancing! All ages/abilities are welcome.
