Peggy Baker Dance Projects
Peggy Baker Dance Projects is dedicated to offering experiences of significance, personal connection, and transformative potential to our audience through the power and beauty of the art of dance. Established in Toronto, Canada in 1990 and incorporated in 1996, Peggy Baker Dance Projects is a charitable non-profit organization led by one of Canada’s foremost contemporary dance artists – Peggy Baker. Distinguished from the outset by collaborations with extraordinary creators and performers, the company has built an exceptional body of work and a growing slate of education, engagement, and enrichment programs for all ages and abilities. Peggy Baker Dance Projects began as a vehicle for solo dance expression; the company’s work now encompasses solo and ensemble dance repertoire, performed to both live and electro-acoustic music, and features a company of outstanding dancers.

One intensive, two teachers

Acclaimed dancer and choreographer Peggy Baker and company dancer and educator David Norsworthy, will work with the teachers this day. They share some guidelines and practices based on their vision of working with dancers in modern dance and improvisation. They will kick-off with an improvisational dance game that explores the poetics of space using a set of five guidelines. After that, they will explore weight shift as a primary entry point for physical practice. The third session will be about interactive movement games, sensory explorations and imagination exercises, that will develop the dancers body and spatial awareness, mobility and stability.
