Tuesday, Wednesday & FRIDAY!

December 6, 7 & 9

Darryl C. Tracy

Darryl is co-artistic director of Four Chambers dance projects. He has choreographed over 25 works for performing arts programs at universities and schools, and for companies in Toronto, Montreal, New Brunswick, and the US. He is on faculty of the School of Toronto Dance Theatre, Canadian Children’s Dance Theatre and Dance-Teq. Darry has taught master classes across Canada, the US and Europe. He has danced with Montreal based Sylvain Émard Danse and has appeared in the work of more than a dozen choreographers including Michael Trent, Holly Small and Heidi Strauss.

I began dancing in my heart at a very young age but more seriously as a professional dancer in my 20′s. Being a dance artist and a neurological physiotherapist, I like to create a class that demands the dancer access to the whole body and mind. For me, class is a time to explore movement necessary for choreographic explorations and for performance work. My center class includes a series of exhilarating movement combinations that develop strength, articulation, balance, control and focus, and that explore the senses and the imagination.


 

THANK YOU! I want to thank all of you who have chosen to take class with GMD over the past six years. You have many choices regarding your training, and we are grateful that you have often chosen to take class with us. I taught at GMD a lot during its first years. I was always inspired by the energy in the studio projected by passionate dancers doing what they love to do. The high spirits you all projected could just about lift the roof off the studio. Wonderful, dedicated dancers have visited us regularly. You have inspired all of us.

My SOS, written on Facebook a couple of weeks ago, was meant only to let you know, very specifically, how much it costs to run a class, so you could understand our financial challenges.
At this point, the future of GMD remains uncertain. Sadly, we will have to close our doors at the end of January. I will schedule classes until December 15, and then resume classes for the month of January. CADA has generously offered to restart its initiative, which offers $5 classes to CADA members, for the month of January. Classes for non-CADA members will remain at only $10. We are also bringing you classes in January so that the people with dance cards can use up their already paid-for classes. There are 18 classes between now and January 26.
All of us here are happy we could dance together for the last six years and now wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavours.
