CLASSES FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO MOVE!

Join Blue Ceiling dance artistic director and dancer Lucy Rupert for a four-week session of dance jams based on her Imaginative Body dance classes.  We’ve loosened up the structure and turned up the joy for this special series of classes.

The Imaginative Body Dance Jam is an hour of movement, taken at your own pace, in your own range, and with your own energy level. Lucy guides you through a series of image-based improvised dances where you plug into the music, find connections between your anatomy and your imagination and reconnect to your centres: physical and energetic.

We will gently and systematically warm up the body, building layers of movement ideas and testing images that support and stretch, promoting healthy joints and relieving stress. The goals are to keep moving, enjoy the music and don’t look at the screen. We hope you leave class with fresh, creative energy.

 

These classes are FOR ANYONE! No formal dance experience required. Bring your desire to move, perhaps to sweat.

Lucy is so positive and encouraging. You feel like you can do anything. Like all your choices are good.

Lucy's approach to movement/dance is freeing and engaging. She creates an atmosphere that allows me to investigate my body and movement without ever feeling limited…Lucy is an incredibly talented performer with an ability to connect with people and tremendous skill as well as subtle and deep humanity and sensitivity within her work.

I never considered before how dance teaches you all kinds of transferrable skills, like how to work with others, how to adapt quickly to things, not just physical things.

I really felt myself grow. I can’t believe we made a dance in 5 days and still spent so much time exploring our individual ways of doing things.

(high school student)

She is very warm, humble and makes everyone feel welcome, no matter their skill set. Lucy doesn't just teach, she joins the class through all exercises, which made me feel re-assured and supported. Her passion for movement and the potential of creation within our body is contagious.
