Reviews

Christine spent the day with us and all I can say is... WOW! Christine had the students engaged from the start. Her presentation was amazing, while geared to the level of each group she worked with. This was probably the best school presentation I have experienced to date. She had all of our students moving the whole time. Brian Smyth Principal, Okanagan Landing School, Vernon
We had our sessions with Ms. Christine today. She is amazing! She engaged every student and and made the dancing accessible to all. She is also bilingual which is great for our French Immersion school. The program offered was well thought out and put together. Thank you for the sessions. The students and staff had a great time dancing! René Aubin Principal, Collettville Elementary, Merritt
Julia and Luv2 Groove provide a positive energy dance program that covers all elements of dance: body, space, time, energy, and relationship in an enjoyable, active and inclusive environment. Students that have been reluctant to participate during school dance classes are motivated to join Julia's easy to follow instructions and actions. There often is a noticeable improvement in dance skills, confidence, and self- esteem of students, even the most hesitant. This was our second year employing Julia's dance company and I would enthusiastically book her for next year. Kate McLean, Grade 5/6 Teacher, Front of Younge Public School

Our multi-day dance residency provides students with the opportunity for active involvement in the art of dance over several days instead of just one day. Each day will build upon the next, allowing further development and refinement through the elements of dance. Students will engage in various movement based activities, follow along grooves and moves, dance routines, and an opportunity to express themselves through guided improvisation and freestyle. On the last day, students will have the opportunity to perform and demonstrate the dances they learned throughout the week.
