Motus O was in Golden last year to perform A Christmas Carol

Professional dance company bringing two workshops to Golden

This year, the company is coming back to offer a week’s worth of free workshops for any interested young dancer in Golden.

Last year Motus O came to Golden to perform A Christmas Carol. The renowned dance company even came early to involve 23 Golden youth in their production.

This year, the company is coming back to offer a week’s worth of free workshops for any interested young dancer in Golden.

Kicking Horse Culture has arranged for Motus O to be in Golden from Jan. 11 to Jan. 17.

Local artists John Denham (A-Muse Troupe, CirKids) and Maggie Calladine (music, theatre, dance, teacher in Golden schools) will be helping to facilitate the activity for Golden’s children and youth.

Over the past 12 years, Kicking Horse Culture has been dedicated to and has successfully created numerous artistic residencies where professional artists and key local facilitators have worked with our children, youth, and grown-ups. Going back to 2005, they have had numerous successes working with James Croker, Cynthia Croker, and Jack Langenhuizen – the co-artistic directors from Motos O dance theatre.

In 2011, a 30 minute piece was created and performed to an audience of 400.

There are two public workshops planned for youth, along with their grown-up caregivers if they so choose to participate.

The directors of Motus O are extremely skilled in working with all levels of experience and skill and drawing out the best in everyone … so no need to be afraid. It’s all about developing creative and expressive movement… finding ways to “move” your body to express a thought, an emotion or tell a story…without words.  Participants will learn some new skills and work/play together to create some fun and expressive “theatre”.

These workshops will fit in as part of the creative planning for the Snow King MasqueParade on Feb. 14, so there will be lots of opportunity to create something that may end up in the event.

The sessions are free, but you must pre-register at info@kickinghorseculture.ca.

The workshops will be on Saturday Jan. 11 from 1-4 p.m, and Jan. 17 from 1-4 p.m., both at the Golden Civic Centre.
