Dance workshop for breast cancer survivors

Four week dance workshop for breast cancer survivors. Using dance as a tool the workshop aims to assist survivors with acknowledging, accepting and moving beyond the challenges cancer can create for them, particularly when it changes their bodies and how they connect with their feminine energy.

The classes will be filmed to create a short dance documentary (participants can opt out of being filmed).
Workshop Details:
Sundays 7:45pm to 8:45pm
Feb. 1, 8, 15 and 22
Scotiabank Dance Centre
Cost: FREE
