A select team of youth filmmakers worked with filmmaker Ella Cooper to investigate the transformative power of dance. In the months leading up to the Luminato Festival, dancers and teachers from Mark Morris Dance Group’s ground-breaking Dance for PD® program, collaborated with the Toronto Dancing with Parkinson’s group and local elementary school students from Nelson Mandela Park PS and Winchester PS to create L’Allegro Movement Project. This film highlights the creative process of this collaborative, intergenerational initiative, and the participants who explored and celebrated the expressive possibilities of movement through dance and music.
