Get ready to be ENERGIZED on May 27th! 

We received such wonderful responses.
We are now taking a waiting list.
Please email Emily Rill (emily.rill@contactivitycentre.org) to be put on a waiting list. 

We invite you to join a drum circle held by Naoko Funahashi, a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC) and a certified music therapist(CMT). If you are looking for an opportunity to connect with others, to tap into your creativity, or to find an energizer, this will be a great opportunity for you. Not only drumming has been practiced in many cultures as a communal activity traditionally, drumming has been suggested to offer multiple benefits including increasing your brain cognition, relieving stress levels, inducing relaxation, and increasing focus, etc.

We will dive into a creative exploration and tap into your creativity and spontaneity outdoors in nature and fresh air.

Proof of vaccination is required.

No musical experience is required.

Location: Outdoors in front of Contactivity Centre (if it rains, we will move in doors)

Time: 1:30-2:30 PM

Free for members -  limited spots available

 NEW ONLINE Dance Balance class with
Emma Chen

Join Emma Chen as she guides us through dance to enhance your strength, mobility, proprioception and balance confidence. In these ballet and modern-dance inspired classes we will work on pliés and tendus, which will be used to build different combinations. We will also work on some flowing dance steps from Limón modern dance and from centre work in ballet. 

About Emma Chen

She is a former pre-professional dancer and am currently a graduate student in the Department of Health, Kinesiology and Applied Physiology at Concordia University. She started dancing in her hometown of Kingston Ontario and at 16 she studied at The Ailey School in New York City. During her training she worked as a dance teacher in the adult recreation division of my local dance studio, which led her to pursue her BSc in Exercise Science and Psychology (Class of 2021) at Concordia University. 

June 15th 10:00-10:45 AM

It’s the 50th Anniversary of Contactivity Centre!

It’s the 50th Anniversary of Contactivity Centre. We started off small and informally way back in 1972. Plans are in the works to celebrate our 50th together with food, music, and more. We’ll be sending out an invitation when the dates and details are finalized.

Here’s what you can do in the meantime - send us a one or two sentence answer to one or both of the following questions for a display: Where were you in 1972? What were you doing in 1972? Maybe raising a family or finishing school, busy with your career or travelling the world or even starting a commune? Just short and sweet, for a snapshot view of what we were all up to way back then! Email to info@contactivitycentre.org or mail it to us.

Contactivity is rebranding! We have updated our logo and changed our general email address to: info@contactivitycentre.org. We have new Contactivity brochures and plenty of interesting specialty Contactivity items. You will soon be able to purchase Contactivity coffee cups, shopping bags, tablet stylus pens, and more so that you can show your pride as a Contactivity member.

Contactivity Centre's Busy Bees

What to do in isolation?  Thank goodness for Crafts!  The Busy Bees are busy knitting, painting and doing other crafts.  Crafts keeps our minds and hands busy!  Here are photos of some of their projects done in isolation.

If you used to knit, paint or any other craft, maybe it is time to pick it up again.
