Please join us for the release of the Legacy Project - a series of video documentations of Angélique Willkie’s dance pedagogy created by Emmanuelle Bourassa Beaudoin, Zoey Gauld, and Espace Perreault.

Invited guests reflect with Angélique on her teaching philosophies and strategies as well as her methods of creating learning material that bring forth fundamental laws and concepts, preparing the body for different types of choreographic work. In sharing this archive, Concordia's Department of Contemporary Dance hopes to support contemporary dance teachers worldwide, offering part of Angélique's knowledge and insight, making her tools clear and accessible.
