The two-week community dance workshop Move It! returns to the Surrey Arts Centre next week.

Move and groove and the Surrey Arts Centre

Free community dance workshop starts next week.

It’s fun and free and the Surrey Arts Centre is bringing it back.

After a successful run last year, Move It!, a community dance workshop returns to Surrey Aug. 6-16, offering confidence, friendship and expression to people of all ages, cultures, shapes, abilities and genders.

Move It! was created by Joe Ink’s Artistic Director Joe Laughlin after his experiences in South Africa where he was inspired by the entire community’s capacity to move and groove together.

Surrey participants can choose either morning (10 a.m.to 12 p.m.) or afternoon (1-3 p.m.). It’s all about experiencing the joy of moving and feeling good, not about pulling off the perfect pirouette. Although the children’s spots are full, there are still a few spots for teens, adults, and seniors.

For all participants, the final Friday (Aug. 16) is 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and includes an informal group performance that friends and family can attend.

Register by phone at 604-501-5566 (press 0) or in person at the Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Ave.). Participants are asked to commit to the entire two weeks.
