Movement Heals

A new program focused on emotional exploration through dance and movement taking place in Toronto, ON.
Under the direction of Michelle Crossman, our producer and artistic director for Let The Elephants Dance. 


More info below.

The Program

Sometimes, asking for help or finding the words to describe what you are going through can be really difficult. Dance and movement however, are powerful tools when it comes to connecting with ourselves emotionally. Wordless and intuitively we can connect how we feel to how we move. Listening to our bodies, and our breath can teach us so much about ourselves.

Movement Heals is about providing a safe space for expression, healing, sharing, and exploration.

Teen Sessions

This new program is ideal for any teen that struggles with their own insecurities, and mental wellness, or who just wants to explore emotions and dance on a deeper level. The group sizes will be limited to give as much time and detail to those participating as possible.

 

With weekly 2HR meetings (12HRS total), we will have various exercises that will be led as a group and individually (exercise depending). All participants will be asked to bring a notepad and pen in order to write out and keep track of how each day has gone for them. Sometimes, even prompts will be given. These notepads are personal and no participant will ever be asked to share what they write with the instructor or the group.

Early Bird Pricing: TBD
 

Regular Pricing: TBD
