Now Accepting Applications for Good Women Dance Collective’s Scholarship

Call for Submissions

Good Women Dance Collective is offering two scholarship opportunities in their 2021/22 season. Scholarship recipients will have access to Good Women Classes for free from January-April 2022.

Deadline to apply: Friday, June 18, 2021 at midnight.
Applicants will be notified by Monday June 25, 2021

Our classes are taught by collective artists Alida Kendell, Ainsley Hillyard, Kate Stashko and Rebecca Sadowski and typically involve memorizing sequences of movements that travel in and out of the floor, with the sequences ranging from simple to intricate in their complexity. Most often classes follow a traditional structure of warm up, across the floor, and choreographed combinations. Improvisation is also used. The focus of the classes vary from technical training to artistic expression to building stamina. Applicants to this program should be interested in deepening their understanding of the body in movement and/or their artistic practice. Scholarship recipients are required to attend a minimum of two Good Women Classes per week during their scholarship term.

Good Women Classes run every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10-11:30am at Good Women’s space in the Shumka Dance Centre (10515 111 Street). Please check online for any schedule changes.
