Good Women Dance Collective Scholarship Program

Date: May 9, 2022

Deadline: Jun 17, 2022 - 11:45 pm

Good Women Dance Collective is offering two scholarship opportunities in their 2022/23 season. Scholarship recipients will have access to Good Women Classes for free from September-December 2022 or January-April 2023.

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.

GWDC is an equity-seeking organization: We support and encourage the sharing of space and stories from all bodies, lands and histories, many of which have yet to be experienced on our stages and in our studios. We acknowledge this and actively strive to change it through our programming and curating. If you belong to an underrepresented community and feel comfortable indicating this in your application, please do so. Feel free to contact us via email at with any questions you may have prior to submitting your application.
