Sharing Dance in the Classroom is a FREE suite of bilingual online resources for teachers, providing high-quality, creative, dance activities to increase physical activity, and mental and emotional well-being. You do not need dance experience to facilitate these classes! The materials are designed to be nationally relevant and meet the needs of dance curriculums across all provinces and territories. The resources are also cross-curricular – units focus on exploring language, science and geography through movement.
Bilingual resources for junior grades are now available. Sign up to access here. Resources for Primary and Intermediate levels will be available in 2017, along with supplementary support tools and modules appropriate for after-school programs, and other community settings.
Powered by Canada’s National Ballet School, the resources were created in partnership with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School and Physical and Health Education Canada.

Three years later, its first studio was a small space above a bread store.
Next week, the centre will open for dance classes, while the nine-dancer professional company will launch its first production, New Universe, on May 27 in its new home.

Site-specific work, an open rehearsal, and a dinner performance all make up activities in Vancouver this International Dance Day.
Initiated in 1982 by UNESCO, International Dance Day happens every April 29 with events across Canada and around the world. The Canadian Dance Assembly publishes a national message, this year featuring Halifax-based dance artist Susanne Chui. One of Chui's Vancouver connections is that her company, Mocean Dance, premiered a new work by Vancouver choreographer Serge Bennathan last year.
Keep your eyes peeled for dance in unexpected locales on Friday. Here are a few to note.
