Kelly McInnes

Dance Artist

Gratefully based on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, Kelly McInnes is a settler of Irish, Scottish & British ancestry. She is a queer contemporary dance artist concerned with embodying care, sensuality, and complexity. As choreographer, performer and community-engaged facilitator, the intention of her work is to inspire collective healing. She creates as a way to remember and celebrate the creative intelligence and wonder of life. Often multi-disciplinary, collaborative and site specific, Kelly's work has been presented in Canada, Berlin and Mexico. Recently certified in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Kelly's work is now powerfully inspired by this practice. Community-engagement is integral to her practice. Since 2015, Kelly has facilitated community classes and collaborative creative processes with over 100 youth, adults and seniors.
