WCD: Class at Home!

Free! Online and on demand!

Geared towards advanced and professional level contemporary dancers, classes are created for a smaller dancing area and as an option for dancers to train at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Two versions of each class are available. The first version has a breakdown and teaching of each setting. The second version moves at a much quicker pace, offering the option to run class.

Available for dancers to do at home and at their convenience.

Artist Fees for WCD’s online classes were made possible with the additional support of a Safe at Home grant from the Government of Manitoba.

Due to the current pandemic, we are not offering any in-person drop-in classes at this time.

We will continue to post updates here throughout the season if there are any changes.

In the 2019 – 2020 season, WCD offered classes led by: Jolene Bailie, Paula Blair, Marc Boivin, Melanie Demers, Léa Noblet Di Ziranaldi, Freya Olafson, Johanna Riley, Ali Robson and Jera Wolfe, with accompanists: Ian Mikita, Tim Church and David Schneider.

In addition, WCD partnered with Young Lungs Dance Exchange and Company Link to present one week of Fighting Monkey technique classes with Guest Artist, Alanna Kraaijeveld.
