YDC is excited to announce the dates and times for our upcoming choreography workshop!
The workshop will be led by Michelle Olsen, the Artistic Director of the Vancouver-based Raven Spirit Dance (http://ravenspiritdance.com) and will take place in three segments:
- Friday October 23, 7-9 pm
- Saturday October 24, 4-8 pm
- Sunday October 25,12:30-4:30 pm
The workshop will take place at Bella Dance and is free, thanks to support from the NWT Arts Council.
We encourage all YDC members to attend as much or as little as they can. This is a great opportunity to dance, learn and create right here in our own backyard. Participation in the workshop is by no means a commitment to choreographing a piece for the upcoming project. Following the workshop we will call a meeting for those interested in further developing choreography for the project.
Please contact the Board at firstname.lastname@example.org if you will be attending or if you have any questions.

Members of the Yellowknife Dance Collective recently had the amazing opportunity to participate in workshops and a collaboration with the Montreal-based percussive dance troupe Zogma. The collaboration came to life on the NACC stage during Zogma’s show Sokalo (which was fantastic!!). Other YDC pieces were also incorporated into the show. Un grand merci à Zogma et l’Association Franco-Culterelle de Yellowknife pour l’opportunitié!
