OUR STORY

Welcome to The DWP Intergenerational Dance Project 2018- 2019!

Following the incredible success of DWP’s Promoting Intergenerational Connections through Dance Project (2016-2017), we are delighted to introduce a new Intergenerational Dance Project for 2018-2019: Bridging Generations through Dance.

 

Like its predecessor, this project uses dance and the choreographic process as a means to promoting increased social interaction and

understanding between seniors and youth.

 

Through a series of 10 intergenerational dance workshops involving DWP dancers and students from the Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre (CCDT), the Bridging Generations through Dance project provides a unique artistic opportunity for both seniors and youth to express themselves and connect on multiple levels.
