Need a nudge to join us for the online presentation? Read about in between here and now in Dance International Magazine and the Winnipeg Free Press.
From Dance International Magazine:
“Bailie has honed her artistic career creating abstract, deeply reflective and conceptually derived works. Her latest offering, “exploring dynamics of perception and desire”, is no exception.”
"…the display of vulnerability proved to be one of the greatest strengths of 'in between here and now'. Another strength was the choreography’s array of dizzying rolls, athletic lifts, flips, mind-numbing inversions, deep crouches and crawls across the floor, hallmarks of Bailie’s restless choreographic style.”
- Holly Harris
From the Winnipeg Free Press:
“‘in between here and now’ uses laughter as an entry point to explore the discomfort inherent in sitting with one’s feelings, or the act of being present — increasingly hard to do in the distracted attention economy, where a typed “lol” often replaces the actual act.” - Jen Zoratti
In May and June, WCD was host to four special Guest Artists!
Hosting Guest Artists is always a special experience for us at WCD. We love the exchange of ideas and perspectives as well as the opportunity for growth and connection that it brings to artistic practice and community.
Special thanks to Marie-Josée Chartier, Sara Porter, Jera Wolfe, and Idan Cohen for sharing their artistry, process, and talents at WCD! Thanks also to the over 30 participants who joined us!
Thanks so much to Sara Porter who performed in conjunction with her workshops, to Ian Mozden who hosted a conversation with Sara Porter, and to everyone who attended our event on May 26th. Thanks so much to Idan Cohen who worked in studio with WCD dancers.
Professional Training for Dancers!
In the 21/22 season, WCD offered 88 in-person classes plus 12 hours of creative workshops with Guest Artists.
Classes were offered in July as well as every month from September to May! Thanks so much to everyone who danced with us during the 2021/22 season.
Class at WCD is typically geared towards advanced/professional level contemporary dancers and serves as WCD’s company class.
Recent creative workshops included a special focus on sustaining longer improvisations as well as time and space for considering entry points for new creation, generating movement, and creating choreography.
