Sharing Dance


Sharing Dance is a nation-wide initiative that makes dance accessible to all people. The program aims to encourage Canadians of all ages and abilities to engage artistically, and reap the physical, social, emotional and cultural benefits that dance provides.

We are excited about the opportunity to introduce dance to a community that might not otherwise have had the chance to participate and work together to make dance accessible to all Canadians! Join us for free classes at the RWB (380 Graham Avenue) every Tuesday open to ages 6+. Families are welcome!

Celebrate the joy of dance with us on Sharing Dance Day, June 1, 2018 at the University of Winnipeg Axworthy Health and Rec Plex. It is 100% free to participate and also includes FREE, fun activities for the whole family.


Learning the choreography easy! Each of the following videos focuses on a short section of the annual routine. Each section shows you the movements in detail and allows you to practice together with counts and music.

Learn the choreography at home or at school with your friends and family!


The 2018 Sharing Dance choreography is a fusion of hip hop and contemporary dance styles. Earth’s natural elements and the art of dance go hand-in-hand for this year’s theme: environmental stewardship. The year’s choreographers, Eugene Baffoe, or GeNie (as he is known in the Winnipeg hip hop community) and Michelle Olson came together to create a unique piece of choreography that uses creative movement to tell a story about the relationship between humankind and the environment that surrounds us.

If you’d like to host your own Sharing Dance Day there are school and community toolkits available to help make your Sharing Dance Day a success!
