Jockey Club “Move with the Silver Flow”
Dance and Well-being Project
Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, Jockey Club “Move with the Silver Flow” Dance and Well-being Project, is a 3-year project organised by Passoverdance. This project fuses dance with four other art disciplines: architecture, music, text and visual arts. With dance workshops, dialogues, performances and cross-generation collaborations, the project invites the elderly to embark on a journey with dance and art to rediscover “well-being”.
The project is a continuation of the Jockey Club “In Search of Voice in a Cramped City” Dance Education Programme, awarded by Hong Kong Dance Awards 2022 “the Outstanding Dance Education or Community Dance”. Jockey Club “Move with the Silver Flow” Dance and Well-being Project is curated by Gabbie Chan, Associate Artistic Director of Passoverdance; with over 20 local professional choreographers/ dance artists and artists from other art disciplines joining the project, veteran performance art, education and culturist- HYF, independent curator Vivian Ting to be the observer of the project and Passoverdance’s artistic director Pewan Chow to be the adviser for the project.

Thank you Passoverdance for extending the invitation to share about the elderly’s needs in arts, (at Course Design) the participants (Instructors and Dance Artists of this Project ) seated on the floor, listening closely to my sharing, and actively raised questions, to understand the difficulties elderly encountered during workshops. Course Design reflected participants’ engagement and involvement to the project.’
Dance in the Community
Curating and Nurturing
By connecting with different community centres, the project develops workshops of three phases including a showcase performance each year; through contemporary dance and 4 other art disciplines showing elderlies the diversities and possibilities of arts.
The project also includes the participation of youth, stimulating intergenerational understanding for the search of a common ground, where hope and future can be realised.
By offering On-going mentorship programme and Train-the-Trainers workshops for artists, choreographers and dance artists, aiming to develop and nurture a professional dance education framework and arts educators.
The project now recruits the youth participant for phase 3 Cross - Generation Dance Programme.
Let's join and meet the elderly and recognize the potential of dance and cross-media creation this summer!
