Dance Week Events 2012

Calling all Dance Lovers – International Dance Day and Dance Week 2012 approaches!

DanceNL invites you to help us celebrate International Dance Day in 2012 by taking part in Dance Week from April 23rd to 29th. You can do this in several ways:

You can join our Dare To Dance Campaign or perform a Random Act of Dance, you can even encourage your municipality to declare Dance Week! How about becoming part of our Flash Mob Dances taking place across the province? Read on to find out more!

Following a hugely successful collaboration in 2011, our major celebration of dance this year will once again be a Flash Mob Dance in cooperation with Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) on Sunday April 29th 2012 and we already have three flash mobs planned across the province!

Part of the fun of a flash mob is having a large group perform and we want lots of you to join us! You don’t have to be a dancer and the routine is suitable for all ages and abilities.

Want to know more about how to get involved? Open up the attached pdf’s and learn how you can come join the dance!
