We use rhythm and movement as tools for self-expression, exploring equity and fostering community connection.
We're grateful to live in a territory that, since time immemorial, has been inhabited by many Indigenous nations including the Mississauga, Anishinaabek, Wendat and Haudenosaunee. Here on the north shores of Lake Ontario the Dish with One Spoon treaty was a long-standing, inter-nation agreement to peacefully share hunting grounds, protect and care for the land and leave plenty for others. European settlers agreed to the treaty, and evidently promises were broken. As settler/newcomers we're commited to learning our responsibilities within the process of Truth & Reconciliation.
We develop educational tools and resources through both film and online formats.
