Go Back to Season


Our classes are open to the public and run every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 10-11:30am. We provide contemporary dance instruction in a 1.5 hour class format, led by one of the collective artists or a guest instructor. Keep your eye out for other exciting one time workshops added throughout the year!

All classes and workshops are held at GWDC’s space at the Shumka Dance Centre at (10515-111 street), unless otherwise stated.

GWDC continues its Scholarship Program, now in its fourth year! The program provides the opportunity for artists to attend GWDC classes for free for one term in the season (September – December 2021 or January – April 2022). This year we are supporting four amazing artists with this opportunity, including the two recipients of our scholarship last year who were unable to use their scholarship as we stopped running in person classes due to COVID.
Phany Peeña (Fall term, 2020 recipient)
Deviani Bonilla (Fall term, 2020 recipient)
Natércia Napoleão (Winter term)
Dayna Hoffmann (Winter term)
