Time to get moving

Free community dance workshop open to all ages and abilities

There are still a few spots left for teens, adults and seniors in Move It!, a free community dance workshop at Surrey Arts Centre starting Aug. 6.

Move It! – guided by professional dancers – offers friendship, confidence-building and expression to people of “all ages, cultures, shapes, abilities and genders.”

Created by Joe Ink’s artistic director, Joe Laughlin, and inspired by his experience of communities dancing and moving together in South Africa, Move It! is focused on experiencing the joy of moving and feeling good, rather than perfecting technique.

It runs from Aug. 6-16 and participants can choose either a morning (10 a.m. to noon) or afternoon (1-3 p.m.) session.

The final Friday session runs from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for all participants, including an informal group performance that friends and family are welcome to attend.

While there is no charge for the Move It! workshop, participants are asked to commit to the entire two weeks.

Call 604-501-5566 or visit the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave., to register.
