The Power of Possibility
Propeller Dance has been an innovator in the field of contemporary integrated dance in Canada since 2007, working with people with and without disabilities. We are committed to excellence — creating, teaching, performing, and presenting integrated dance. 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.
Propeller Dance reaches thousands annually through:
- Performances by the professional company of new creations and repertoire works
- Dance training programs for children, youth, and adults
- Education and outreach programs in schools and community settings
Contemporary integrated dance is a dance specialization where dance artists of diverse minds and bodies create new dance, drawing on various established techniques such as improvisation and contemporary dance. 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.
