Carolina Bergonzoni

I'm a a Vancouver-based Italian dance artist, yoga teacher, and scholar with a BA in Philosophy, an MA in Philosophical Science and an MA in Comparative Media Arts. My research interests include dance and phenomenology, as well as the definition of presence in dance performance. 

I have been teaching since 2008. In 2011, I graduated as a Dance Educator and Community Engagement Facilitator (Danzeducatore¬©). The same year, I also received my certification as a Teacher in Philosophy for Children and Community (P4C); since then, I have been working toward building a community of movers and thinkers with people from 0 to 99+ years old. 

I'm the artistic director of the Italian association CO.ME.TE (Body, Mind and Territory) and of the co-founder of PerFormazioni Cinetiche (PFC), an Italian association for dance promotion, management and production.

I am proud to be sit on the Board of Live Biennale Vancouver, to be the secretary of Vines Art Festival, and the Chair of Raven Spirit Dance.
