• Dance As You Are
“Dance is not about learning steps, a style or technique. Dance is any movement the body chooses to make, a physical expression that words cannot express. For all human beings, dance is a way to learn and communicate. As babies we relate to our caregivers through movement and physical contact. As children we continue to learn through movement. All movement is dance; our physical connection to others and non-verbal communication - a life long dance with the world.”
Nina is an advocate for dance, as an art-form, and its greater significance for our society. She is committed to creating opportunities to reveal and highlight the importance of dance (all movement and non-verbal communication) in how we live, learn and relate to each other. Nina holds a deep knowledge of artistic dance practices and practical know-how from management of companies and large scale projects. Current clients include; Ballet BC, Dancing on the Edge Festival, Sadler's Wells, Dancer Transition Resource Centre, Mdance and more...
Nina has proven success within the arts + culture sector significantly impacting the organizations she works within. Nina has demonstrated strong leadership and advocacy for the arts throughout her career and this was recently recognized when she was selected for Canada's Fellowship for the International Society for Performing Arts Congress 2019/2020 plus, Banff Centre for Arts + Creativity’s inaugural Cultural Leadership Program and selected as a Leadership Fellow for the Business for the Arts CAS/21.
