DanceXpress—An Essential Foundation
A Ballet BC initiative since 2015, DanceXpress provides children in Vancouver access to dance and the freedom of self-expression through movement. In partnership with Pacific Coast Resource Society and Vancouver Community School Teams, DanceXpress offers dance/movement programming to at-risk children and to youth whose access to dance specifically—and arts and culture more broadly—is otherwise limited.
DanceXpress is not about learning steps, a style or technique—it’s about moving, finding rhythm, connecting, listening and learning. Through dance students learn to communicate with each other and their self. Maintaining a strong body-mind connection is fundamental to good health; understanding what the body is communicating is an essential foundation to developing a sense of inner strength and emotional wellness.
Summer Ballet Class Series
Ballet BC is delighted to be continuing our adult ballet class series! We hope to see you online for our summer classes taking place May 3 – June 28, 2021.
This is a beginner and beginner-plus adult ballet class. Led by Ballet BC artists, this series will be an introduction to ballet and an opportunity for those with prior experience to improve their technique. Each class will begin with a ballet barre and will conclude with some centre exercises and stretching. The format of the class has been modified to work for students participating from home.
We plan to be back in the studio for our Fall 2021 series.
