Crimson Coast is the only organization in our community dedicated to providing professional contemporary dance performances, workshops, and residencies. We are passionate about bringing you diverse, high-calibre artistic opportunities to the Nanaimo area, which would not otherwise be available. Did you know that for each event, when we bring professional artists to Nanaimo to perform, we work with them to offer dance workshops in the community at all skill levels? These opportunities provide the Nanaimo community with a remarkable opportunity to learn from established professional artists in addition to seeing their performance work in a fully staged performance environment.
Through participation in mainstage workshops and classes, dance provides a range of health benefits to the communities we serve. While we already know that exercise in general has numerous beneficial effects, from reducing rates of cardiovascular disease to improving mood and memory, dance has specific and targeted health results. Independent research studies out of the UK over the past 10 years are reporting a significant positive impact of dance on youth, identifying increases in physical fitness, self-esteem, and overall psychological health.
As well, the social benefit of the shared creative experience whether in a class or witnessing a performance inspires dialogue, sense of self and a sense of community identity. Dance holds a place for beauty in this world. Beauty is essential to inspiration and health as well as to the recuperative process as we move through today's global challenges.
