NANAIMO – Crimson Coast Dance's Body Talk Cru holding week-long dance workshops beginning Monday (March 17).

A week-long Nanaimo dance studio is offering youth the chance to learn some new moves.

The youth of the Crimson Coast Dance’s Body Talk Cru are producing a dance workshop and performance titled The Body Talk Project that focuses on hip-hop, swing and clown dance styles.

The Body Talk Project begins on Monday (March 17) and runs until Saturday, where a production will be held at Malaspina Theatre.

Instructors include Dianna David and Kat Single-Dain. David is an award-winning multi-disciplinary artist who recently received the B.C. Arts Champion Artist Award by ArtStarts in Schools and the BC Arts Council. She will be teaching hip hop, mime and contact juggling.

Single-Dain is a writer, director choreographer and co-founder of Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret. The CBC named her one of “Vancouver’s best kept secrets.” She has choreographed seven full-length original theatre productions, including Jesse Award-nominated Hard Times Hit Parade. She will be teaching contact improvisation and vintage swing dance.

Registration for The Body Talk Project costs $125 per person for the entire week, which includes the production on March 22. Registration is $60 for those under 13 and free for adults accompanied with someone who is eight-years-old or younger. For more information, please visit
