About YMI Dancing:
Young Movement Incorporated Dancing is a youth dance company. Established in 1991, our mandate is to give young dancers the opportunity to bring performance to the general community. The company gives dance performances at public schools, libraries, and nursing homes. Yearly we travel to Guelph to be part of the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival, in the series Youth Moves. We have been part of the Parkdale Festival, and showed some signature pieces on Canada Day in High Park, and in the Junction. YMI Dancing connects local Toronto artists with the dancers of the company. The company has enjoyed the teaching of professional performers such as Julia Aplin, Susie Burpee, Meagan O'Shea, Malgorzata Nowacka, Julia Sasso and Darryl Tracy. YMI provides an exciting opportunity for students to learn different dance techniques and vocabulary and thus grow as young dance artists.
Each April, the company performs in a full-length show (4 performances) at Pia Bouman Studio Theatre. The performance showcases works by student dancers, Toronto artists, and artistic director Pia Bouman.

STUDENT CHOREOGRAPHIC SHOWING 2018
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Scotiabank Theatre at 6 Noble for our 2018 Student Choreographic Showing on October 27, 2018.
Three of our senior dancers debuted their first choreographed pieces. The company performed the premieres of My World Changes by Zita Campbell, Reflected by Alaia Rustecki Lopes, and Living In Harmony by Cadence Parsons. We also performed The Chess Game by Pia Bouman which was first introduced in 1992 and features original music by one of the school’s then-pianists.
We will be performing all four of these pieces, plus four others, in our annual Spring Show, April 26-28, 2019.
