Propeller Dance has been an innovator in the field of contemporary integrated dance and diverse performance practices in Canada since 2007. Propeller Dance is committed to excellence — creating, teaching, performing, presenting integrated dance and more recently, inter-arts performance. At the core of our work is the belief that dance is for all people, and as wide a breadth of expression as possible is of value. We are recognized as a leader in Canada for our innovative, inclusive creations and teaching practices.
Contemporary integrated dance is a dance specialization where dance artists of diverse minds and bodies create new dance and performance, drawing on various established techniques within the improvisation, theatre and contemporary dance genres. The goals are to discover, uncover, showcase, and highlight the beauty and power of dancers of all abilities working together. We define virtuosity as the ability to move an audience, through presence, connection, human spirit, as well as physicality. Disability is understood as a difference in human experience rather than a limitation or something to overcome. Our goal is to create meaningful art that broadens acceptance of diversity in its many forms.
If you can breathe, you can dance.
