Dance goes online for a day

Dancers at Canberra Dance Collective

ONE of Canberra’s newest dance groups, Canberra Dance Collective, is hosting a day of online workshops for dancers in Canberra and beyond this weekend.

According to CDC co-directors, Juanita Boehm and Renee Mandanici-Baldwin, The Living Room Project will feature some of the nation’s best teachers and choreographers.

The line-up includes dancer and choreographer with Cirque Du Soleil and Dream Dance Company, Mitch Wynter, as well as Robbie Kmetoni, winner of “So You Think You Can Dance Australia” Season 3.

Boehm and Mandanici-Baldwin say the dance day will give young dancers something to look forward to and something to keep them inspired and moving.

”We know how important it is for our mental health to keep moving. We’re very grateful to have such wonderful instructors on board who also recognise how important it is to stay connected during challenging times like these,” Boehm says.

The Living Room Project is proving attractive to many Canberra dance studios as they return to the world of online classes.

Canberra Dance Collective was formed in 2019, with the aim of providing opportunities for all Canberra and Regional NSW dancers to come together and learn from dance educators and choreographers.
