Good Women Dance Collective is a creation-based company that is committed to helping create a vibrant and sustainable contemporary dance community in Edmonton. The society’s artistic focus is on creating and producing innovative new works with integrity and conviction. Good Women also dedicates part of its season toward offering performance, education and professional development opportunities to artists working in Edmonton, and is passionate about making contemporary dance more accessible to the general public.
The three founding members met at Grant MacEwan College in the Contemporary Dance Program, under the instruction of Brian Webb and Heidi Bunting. Graduating with their diplomas in dance, each member furthered their personal training in various directions, across Canada. Current artistic members include Ainsley Hillyard, Alison Kause, Alida Nyquist-Schultz and Kate Stashko. Good Women is committed to becoming part of, and supporting the Edmonton artistic community.
