We are looking for adventurous movers and singers between the ages of 16 and 76 to take part in a contemporary performance project presented by the Ontario Dances Program Kingston under the direction of celebrated Canadian choreographer Peggy Baker and vocal director Fides Krucker.
We will cast a series of brief dances with varying levels of physical demands from simple walking patterns to complex multi-faceted movement sequences. New this year will be an exploration of simple vocal techniques to be integrated within the choreography and also as a vocal chorus.
In order to bring together a group of performers for this project there will be a preliminary 2 hour workshop at The Kingston School of Dance, in the Tett Centre, on Saturday, July 8 from 11a.m. to 1p.m. This is a chance for you to find out more about the project and to learn some of the basic movements and vocal techniques so that you can decide if you’d like to be involved. Wear comfortable workout clothes, and bring a bottle of water.
If you would like to join a diverse community group where the common interest is to connect with the poetry and potency of dace and music, we would love you to join us!
