Virginia is a performing artist, choreographer and educator. She shares her dance practice through the facilitation of community engaged dance practice. She started her performing arts career by dancing with the Karen Jamieson Dance Company and interpreting solos by choreographers including Serge Bennathan and Cornelius Fischer-Credo. Virginia eventually developed a practice as solo artist and choreographer. Virginia completed her BA in dance and performance at the European Dance Development Centre. The program in Arnhem, Netherlands later became Master of Choreography at ArtEZ University of the Arts. From time to time, individuals who are not family members are invited to dance with the indigenous dance company, Dancers of Damelahid. Virginia was invited into one of those roles.

About Claudia Artiga

Claudia is a Salvadoran born artist, based in North Vancouver, BC.  Her principal medium is painting with acrylics, although she also includes drawing, watercolour and mixed media experimentation in her practice. Growing up in El Salvador, Claudia felt deeply connected to her surroundings: the ocean and the local flora and fauna, thus her expression has focused mainly on nature. She has studied drawing, illustration and painting at the prestigious Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver and abstract painting and mixed media at the Greenwich campus of the London South East Colleges in the UK. Claudia aims to capture the human connection to the natural and physical world, and she continues to be inspired by the beauty of the Pacific North West Coast where she currently resides with her husband, children and her Havanese pup named Romeo.
