About GetLive Project

GetLIVE Project is all about the creation of groundbreaking dance choreography performed by DeafDancers via LIVEYouTube Stream. Deaf Dancers will learn choreography to various hip hop songs that promote positivity, empowerment, inclusivity, and cultural appreciation.

Dancers who apply and are accepted will spend 5, 1 Hour dance sessions learning dance choreography that they will perform for YouTube on the 6th session. Deaf Dancers will have their hair and makeup professional done on the day of filming in partnership with ArtWithSas, and other Deaf production artists and technicians from Manitoba.

ASL Interpreters will be on site to translate communication between Choreographer and Deaf Dancers.
Difinity Dance believes all Artists should feel sassy and classy on stage whether or not they are differently abled.

Stephanie will be creating a final report by working with MB Researchers on How Deaf Dancers quality of lives improved from participation in this project.

Stephanie Strugar has created this project with the goals of:
1. Creating empowering professional dance opportunities for deaf performers
2. Promoting dignity, ability, and potential of deaf performers
3. Promoting ASL as an official language
4. Removing stigma's and barriers deaf performers face in the performance industry.

About the Choreographer
Stephanie Strugar has started this project after researching deaf and disabled opportunities for training and performing in Manitoba, and found that there were not consistent opportunities for these performers to engage in professional opportunities in theatre, film, and TV. As a person with an invisible disability she understands the barriers and challenges disabled performers face in education and performance opportunities, and desires to open minds of audiences locally and globally.
