✹ ✹ ✹

 

This spring, we invite High Schoolers to participate in our After School Leaders Program: Movement as Medicine, where participants will explore the art form of dance, as not only performance art, but also as a tool for healing, learning, and connecting.

 

Kilusan and Lessizm will co-create a container with dancers to learn and develop their movement vocabulary and freestyle techniques in vogue, hip hop, breaking and house. Topics covered within each workshop will include: history, foundational movements, freestyle concepts, and occasionally choreography.

 

The purpose of this workshop series is to improve mind, body, and soul connection through movement-based practices in community. Dancers will also have an opportunity to learn about gardening, foraging, and mental health!

PINOYS ON PARLIAMENT 2022: PAGITAN

Pagitan is a Tagalog word that implies a “space in between”.

For POP22, we want to provide a space for you to explore the intersectionality of your identity as both a Filipino/a/x and Canadian youth. Being a Fil-Can youth is not limited to one identity; you can explore and celebrate the different spaces that make you, You. Whether that’s excelling in the arts, pursuing STEM, being an entrepreneur, or being involved in politics, this is a SPACE for you to explore!

Register here to join us from May 20-21 and May 27-28, 2022, and celebrate the Pagitan within us.

This will be a beginner friendly workshop, where participants will have a chance to strengthen their mind, body, spirit, ancestral and community connections.

Workshop Title: Movement Medicine: House Dance to Strengthen your mind, body, spirit, ancestral and community connections

 

Workshop Description: Kilusan will co-create a container with dancers to learn movement vocabulary and freestyle techniques in the vogu dance genre in their workshop titled, "Movement Medicine." Students will learn the foundational elements of Vogueing and the history of queer Black and Latinx folks establishing the ballroom community. Ballroom is an underground queer subculture in which people "walk" (i.e., compete), perform, dance, lip-sync, and model in different categories, which are designed to simultaneously epitomize and satirize gender constructs, occupations, and social classes, while also offering an escape from reality. Category participants are required to “walk” one by one to receive full approval from all judges, known as ‘receiving your 10s’. Competitors are judged on their abilities, “effect” (costumes, appearance, theatrics, presentation), and perceived “realness” (embodied and/or visual believability, authenticity). Those who make their 10s battle one on one against each other for trophies, prizes, and glory.
