Who we are

All Bodies Dance Project is an inclusive dance company located on unceded Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil- Waututh), and xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) territories (Vancouver, BC, Canada). Our mission is to create opportunities for people of all abilities, genders, sizes, and backgrounds to practice, research, and create innovative, inclusive dance. Our work straddles labels of community-engaged and professional practice. We aim to dismantle assumptions, biases and default notions around contemporary dance, the theatre and the dancing body. Through mentorship and training, we are helping to develop a new and under-represented group of dance-makers, teachers and artistic leaders with a unique set of values and approaches.
