Carol Anderson has pursued a long and diverse career as a dancer, choreographer, teacher, director and author. An avid dance writer, she has chronicled Canadian dance and dancers since the 1980s in a developing body of writing that includes biographies, collections, articles, notes, and essays. Recently retired from the Department of Dance at York University, she continues to write, teach and choreograph – and looks forward to spending more time at her place in the County where she’s cottaged for 21 years.
Arwyn Carpenter‘s aim as a teacher is to demystify dance classes for men and boys, for students of limited means, and for non-dancers of all body shapes and abilities. She believes the transferable skills achieved through dance include improved physical control and awareness, keener perception in relationships and interactions, and a greater sense of well being. She holds an MFA in Dance from NYU’s Tisch School and is an Ontario Certified Teacher currently teaching for the Toronto District School Board.
