BODY ART MOTION (BAM)

COMMUNITY ~ CONNECTION ~ EXPRESSION

Body Art Motion was established in 1998 after founder Tanya Lee experienced profound personal growth benefits through the mind-body movement arts. The vision for BAM is to bridge ancient practices with modern lifestyles by aligning with the inherent magic found in natural rhythms. Our mission is to cultivate an inclusive community that values self-study & expression, love & kindness, discipline & connection. We support this mission by offering in-person and online movement classes, education, events and performance opportunities. With the support, feedback and love of our community, this body of work continues to evolve towards a collective need.

CONJURE MOTION

A system of Mindful Movement that fuses dance, yoga and ritual.  From vibrant group dance to deep solo yoga; from moves born on a festival dance floor to gentle healing discovered at home on the mat – we aim for an adventure of body, mind, heart, soul and community. All levels of experience, all bodies, and all genders are welcomed.

WITCHY WOMAN

Explore the universal language of life force energy, tides of the cosmos, and patterns of nature through the seasons. Implement wisdom from moon phases our ancestors used to develop systems for time and mental/physical health. Discover for yourself what is still relevant and effective today.

PERFORMANCE ART

This is where we cultivate the freedom to feel expressed and to study concepts through archetypal embodiments. We welcome you to join us for the journey of interpretation, storytelling and connection through movement, costuming, music, poetry.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We acknowledge the land on which we work from, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, with the traditional Blackfoot name of “Moh’kins’tsis”, which we now know as the City of Calgary. This is the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations).  Other Nations who are a part of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta also call this place home, which includes the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations).  This territory is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations, Indigenous and non, who live, work and play, as well as help steward this land, honour and celebrate this territory.
