DANCE WEEK: TUESDAY!

Happy International Dance Day, everyone!

To celebrate this special day, we have two dance ambassadors on the roster: Kate Cornell, Executive Director of the Canadian Dance Assembly, and Christopher House, Artistic Director of Toronto Dance Theatre!

Speaking of the CDA, they have a beautiful International Dance Day message from Santee Smith. And the International Theatre Institute have made a gorgeous video for their Dance Day message, written by Mourad Merzouki.

Schools around the province are dancing today as part of our Dare to Dance initiative! Keep an eye to the internet for updates… or you might hear us on the radio!

Yesterday, On the Go played the fourth runner-up for Most Danceable Song: Beautiful Vegan Girl by Neil Conway!

Random Acts of Dance are rolling in! People are dancing in Corner Brook, in St. John’s… even at City Council! Keep it coming – we are loving the videos!

We’re in the Telegram today, thanks to Arts Reporter Tara Bradbury – check out that article here.

Tonight, the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor will be proclaiming Dance Week to its citizens. Thanks to the young dancers who will be representing the dance community at that proclamation!
