Good Women Classes and Workshops

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10:00 to 11:30 at Shumka Dance Centre 

GWDC offers dance training year round, taught by a rotating schedule of collective and guest artists. Geared towards advanced movers, classes explore a range of techniques and physical expressions with a focus on curiosity and a desire to connect with the community through the joy brought by moving together. Participants can expect to be led through various combinations of standing exercises, floor work, set material and improvisations. GWDC instructors use body neutral, judgement-free terminology and do not teach gendered roles to participants. Instructors also use a consent-based approach in regards to touch and proximity among participants.

In addition to our weekly classes, GWDC offers workshops throughout the year led by local and international artists which are geared towards movers and dance enthusiasts of all ages. Included in these workshops is our Masterclass Series with the Brian Webb Dance Company, which are taught by renowned artists visiting Edmonton to perform in BWDC’s season. Check our classes page for a schedule of upcoming instructors and workshop details.
