Arts Etobicoke in partnership with the Tiger Princess Dance Projects presents Swallowing Clouds, a multidisciplinary workshop series bringing professional dancers, authors, poets, and musicians into the community. This workshop series is for youth aged 10 to 14 years. Participants are guided through an inspiring creative journey. Our interdisciplinary approach provides participants with a safe space to express themselves physically, aesthetically, and emotionally. Together, we’ll use movement, music, & literary arts to create our own work of dance theatre… from the comfort of your own home!
