Body Image in the World of Dance, a panel discussion presented by Hart House Theatre, the U of T Festival of Dance, and Only Human Dance Collective
The UofT Festival of Dance is so excited to share with you our upcoming event: Body Image in the World of Dance, a panel discussion presented by Hart House Theatre, the U of T Festival of Dance, and Only Human Dance Collective. The event will take place Saturday June 12, 2021 at 7:30-9:30pm(EST) on a Zoom Webinar Platform. Our panelists include: Choreographer, performer and instructor Joanne Camilleri, EveryBody on Stage founder Gregory Carruthers (actor, choreographer and body positive activist), Fitness professional Simone Sameuls, and Dr. Kyle Ganson, whose work largely focuses on eating disorder treatment.
As movers, storytellers and dancers, our bodies are the primary tools and instruments to our expression. What are the impacts on the performer when their expressive outlet - the body - is being shaped to fit an industry mold? Join us in a panel discussion with members of the dance community from a variety of sectors as we discuss how the body fits into the dance world. Our panelists will talk through the expectations, effects, repercussions, and perceptions of the dancers' body, as well as examine the lack of representation, mental health effects and the body positivity movement that is currently creating change in the dance community.
