The F Word's Ariana Barer speaks to members of Polymer Dance -- a Vancouver-based contemporary dance performing group and class. Co-founders and organizers Miriam Esquitin and Kristina Lemieux, and Polymer participant Dana Elhert discuss public space, accessibility in movement, the ways dance has been raced, classed and gendered, playfulness, art and the democratization of dance.
