March has arrived and Spring approaches!
Today we begin our Spring into Spring session of online classes, including a creation process with Carol Anderson - Ocean Motion. Our imaginations carry us to the beach where we become the waves!

JOE - a webcast of the 1995 video recording will be available March 17 - 23!
One of the most influential contemporary dance artists in Canada, choreographer, painter and set designer Jean-Pierre Perreault (1947–2002) created Joe in 1983 for students in the dance department at Université du Québec à Montréal. From 1984 to 2004, professional productions with as many as 32 dancers revived the piece and toured the world.
A webcast of a video recording of Joe, produced in 1995 by Bernard Picard for Radio-Canada, will be available between March 17 and 23, 2021, at the time of your choosing, for $15
At Older & Reckless 2016 Danser Joe, an excerpt of Joe, was performed by a cast of 25 amateurs along with 5 former Joe performers reviving their roles. A co-production with Fondation Jean Pierre Perreault, presented in association with MOonhORsE and Harbourfront Centre, Danser Joe was an unforgettable experience for participants and audience alike!
