Golden Groove: Lightning in a Bottle - Part 1

Three figures are pictured in this black and white scene. The figure on the far left wears a metallic costume mask with feathers which protrude upwards. Their mouth is open as they hold a glass in their hand. The figure in the middle wears a dark feather boa, presents a half-smirk and a feather black costumer mask. They are also holding a glass with an opaque liquid. The figure on the far right has short hair and wears a buttoned shirt that has been unbuttoned. They stare into the camera wearing sunglasses.

Golden Groove: Lightning in a Bottle - Part 1

In partnership with the Koffler Centre of the Arts and their long-term community partner, Dancing with Parkinson’s, the AGO is inviting all seniors to participate in a series of dance workshops inspired by the new exhibition, Studio 54: Night Magic

Sarah Robichaud, Founder and Executive Director of Dancing with Parkinson's, collaborates with Lauren Spring, AGO Art Educator, to transport participants through movement as we reimagine ourselves celebrating a 'night out' at Studio 54. Exploring the dangers, delights and dichotomies associated with Studio 54, we intersperse photos, facts, and creative movement, to guide participants through the fashion and the fun on the dance floor.

The specially curated program is an inclusive opportunity for all seniors to combat isolation and come together to explore dance and celebrate the trailblazing aesthetics, performance styles and social freedoms connected with the Studio 54 era. No dance experience required, all are welcome to join in for the fun and freedom of all things Studio 54.

Lauren Spring has been an Art Educator at the AGO since 2009. She is also a PhD candidate in the Adult Education and Community Development program at the University of Toronto and has written and published both scholarly and creative work about museum pedagogy, accessibility, and arts-based approaches to understanding mental health. Lauren also has a background in theatre, film and improvisation.

Dancing with Parkinson’s (DWP) core mission is to bring seniors out of isolation and into an artistic community where they can dance and connect with others. We provide a fun, safe environment where those with Parkinson's Disease can celebrate the artistry and potential of their own movement.

The Koffler Centre of the Arts is a cultural platform that explores critical ideas and concerns of our time through exhibitions, publications, performances, literary events and digital initiatives. We examine complex issues through transformative art experiences that stimulate intercultural dialogue and position Jewish identity in conversation with diverse perspectives and global voices.

Automated captioning is available for all online programs. Please provide three weeks advance notice for requests for Verbal Description, American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and/or live captioning for AGO programming. The AGO will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than three weeks notice. Please contact us to make a request for these accommodations.
