Creative Immersion - NOW

This 6-week MOVE progressive series offers a thematic exploration of current Ballet BC work through the lens of expressive arts—movement, drawing, writing, and dialogue. The ‘NOW’ series will begin by introducing expressive arts work and progress into sessions inspired by Out Innerspace’s new creation which will have its world premiere at ‘NOW’ in March 2024. 

Open to ages 18-98, participants come together to indulge in the nourishment and adventure of the creative process in a supportive group setting. Expect guided warm-ups, creative and somatic dance instruction, artmaking prompts, personal reflection, sharing, and space for individual interpretation. Creative Immersion may be for you if you want to enrich your existing artistry, cultivate the mind-body connection, or develop the relationship between dance, your own life, and the community. All are welcome.
