All Bodies Dance Project offers accessible and inclusive dance classes for adults of all abilities, genders and backgrounds. We strive to create an open, safe and fun environment where everyone can experience the joy of moving and creating within a diverse community where differences are celebrated.

What to expect


 

Classes focus on improvisation, drawing from contemporary dance and theatre techniques. We welcome participants who are new to dance as well as those who bring years of experience and training.


Absolutely no experience or skill is required!


Anyone who requires one-to-one support must bring their own attendant and we ask that everyone who is in the room participate. No one is just a spectator!


Classes are offered for free thanks to funding from the Roundhouse, Trout Lake Community Association, Sunset Community Association and The City of Vancouver.


 

Our policies and the details


Registration


Registration for our classes is run through the Vancouver Park Board community centres that we work in and can be done over the phone, in person or online. Everyone must be registered for class. If you decide that you are no longer able to continue with the class, please notify the community centre right away as we regularly have a waiting list for our classes and would like to offer your spot to someone else.

Accessibility


Our classes take place in community centre facilities that are all physically accessible buildings including washrooms. We welcome both seated and standing dancers and anyone who uses a mobility device. If you have any accessibility concerns or questions please let us know!

Scent Free Spaces


All Bodies Dance Project has a strict scent free policy. As some of our participants experience severe scent sensitivities we ask that people come to class as scent free as possible. This means no perfumes, colognes, hairspray, scented creams and deodorants including essential oils. This is to ensure that our classes are a safe space for everyone.

ASL Interpretation


ASL interpretation is available by request for any of our classes and we welcome Deaf/hard of hearing persons. We require minimum one weeks notice to book or cancel an interpreter.

All Genders


All Bodies Dance Project welcomes participants of all gender identities. We make space at the beginning of each class to ask people to state their name and their preferred pronouns. (Common pronouns are She/Her, He/Him or They/Them) We ask that participants in our classes make an effort to not assume anyone’s gender pronoun and use peoples preferred pronouns or names.
