“Being a practising artist while raising children is difficult. Canadian dance is in the midst of a baby boom. I read this as a crossed threshold. The dance artist’s identity has arrived as a fullblooded citizen.
The next steps are to ensure maternity benefits, develop day cares, and salary levels that can afford those costs.
Knowing some of the parenting/ art practice hazards i want to support the artists that are keeping active careers alive while pursuing a healthy family life. BLOOM kids is continuing this conversation.”
