Did you know that The Cornerstone Studio is the home of the Toronto-based professional contemporary dance company, Alias Dance Project? New this season, Alias Dance Project’s Artistic Director Lauren Cook is thrilled to introduce Alias Dance Projects’ youth Performance Company, in partnership with The Cornerstone Studio, to offer young dance artists the opportunity to work in professional, collaborative creative processes.
Alias Dance Project believes in the importance of creating and performing in interactive, site-specific settings, opening up new realms of potential for creation. Through the Performance Group, Alias will bring professional choreographers together with the Performance Group students, to be involved in the creation of a special site-specific performance. The performance group will build a travelling dance work, performing alongside professional artists, which will take place in various locations around the local community. This piece will be performed at the Gerrard India BIA Christmas event, bringing the audience on a travelling, dancing tour of the neighbourhood.
This is a community-based project— any dancer, age 7 or older, from any discipline is welcome. There is no audition or selection process.
