EDMONTON, Alberta - April 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Edmonton, AB - With every TV station worth its salt featuring some form of dance program these days, more and more people are feeling the urge to move from tapping their toes, to getting up and moving into the world of dance. But for many people—especially adults—it’s difficult to know where to start. The Got Dance? Weekend, a fundraiser for Orchesis Dance Society and Collaborative Radically Integrated Performers Society of Edmonton (CRIPSIE) gives newcomers, as well as veterans, the opportunity to test the waters of body and movement.

For the second year, Got Dance? has succeeded in bringing together some of the top teachers and mentors in dance from the region, running the gamut from Bollywood, to Jazz, to Ballet, and Garuda. Of particular note this year, is the inclusion of CRISPIE who will be providing a workshop on integrated dance—dance that is oriented towards the inclusion of participants with varying mobility.

“The goal of our program is to allow participants of all levels to venture into new territories in the world of dance. We’ve curated our workshops to provide opportunities to develop existing skills, explore new forms, and just to connect with others who share a passion for dance,” says organizer Angela Sekulic, herself a dancer with CRIPSIE and Orchesis.

Alison Neuman, author and CRIPSIE dancer, hopes that the weekend will help bring more people to the world of dance “It’s such a powerful medium, but people can be intimidated into thinking that it’s too late to start, or that there isn’t a place for them if they don’t fit the image of what a dancer should look like. Nothing could be further from the truth. Dancing, at any age, has tremendous benefits physically, mentally, and emotionally. This weekend is about reaching out to anyone who’s ever felt the draw of this art form.”

Participants can choose from a variety of affordable workshop options for the events taking place at Dance Unlimited in Edmonton, May 3rd and 4th. There will also be a viewing of the CRIPSIE film, “New Constellation: A Dance-umentary,” official selection of the Global Visions Film Festival. For more information or to register, visit
