Gemma Crowe

Dancing developed a creative and expressive platform upon which Gemma Crowe began to build her artistic career. Enamored with the study of all facets of dance, Crowe completed her Bachelor of Art’s degree Majoring in Dance. Spending a year with the SURGE co. and undertaking several choreographic projects solidified the foundation for her interest in pursuing the physical and visual aspects of movement. Crowe left Calgary to pursue work in the Film Industry, completing the Digital Film Production Program at Lanagara College and an internship in New York City with The think/feel Reel. The value of Dance as art remains of paramount importance to Crowe as she emerges in Vancouver’s Dance community actively choreographing and performing and acting as co-director of Strange Change, a dance collective devoted to integrating collaborative artists of varying mediums. Crowe pursues the study of movement as a practice, as an art form and through the medium of film, it is a passion which fuels her engagement with the world around her.
