How do trained dancers translate their knowledge beyond performance? How does dance inform your personal and professional experiences? What are the benefits of dance and movement as co-curricular programs in learning environments?


The Well Being Collective @ Hart House presents this first event in a newly developed series led by the Institute for Dance Studies at the University of Toronto Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies in partnership with Hart House. Moving, Dancing, Knowledge series engages learning communities within and beyond the university to explore and highlight dance scholarship and practice, the role of dance and movement in physical and mental well-being, and the considerations of dance as both an artistic and activist form that embodies intersecting identities as well as broader social issues.

These collaborative initiatives involve many partners, seek to engage with existing programming and to inform and develop new learning and practices. A focus on communities that have typically been under-represented and underserved in dance, wellness, artistic and academic settings is a key consideration in all programming.

Moving, Dancing, Knowledge: Dance Beyond Performance, the first event in the 2020-21 series welcome an array of speakers, including those who have professional dance training who can speak to how this has informed other areas of their achievement, development and career experience. It also includes those who have fostered dance initiatives for students to enhance and enrich their educational and student experience. The session will explore the role of dance and embodied practice and the ways in which it informs, translates into, and enriches academic and professional settings.
