Georgia Simms

Georgia is an artist, educator and facilitator. Her dance performance career, both as a company member with Dancetheatre David Earle and as a freelance artist, has taken her to different parts of Canada, France and South Korea. She has taught Graham-based modern technique as well as movement improvisation in a variety of contexts, for youth and adults, since 2005. These experiences in dance combined with her academic studies, in geography, governance and arts-based community engagement, inform her creation of learning experiences for students in the First Year Seminar Program at the University of Guelph. She also weaves movement into her group facilitation and program design for the organization, Art Not Shame. Georgia lives in Guelph with her partner, Adam, and their two-year old daughter. She is humbled by, and grateful for, the opportunity to be an artist-in-residence with Guelph Dance for its 2020-2021 season.
