“I Love Dance/J’aime la danse” Presentation 

I love dance / J’aime la danse National Campaign comes to St. John’s!

On Sunday October 16th, Nathalie Fave, Executive Director of the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA), will host a community discussion and presentation on the I Love Dance/J’aime la Danse National Campaign with a focus on the launch of the National Dance Week. The presentation will be held in conjunction with the 21st Festival of New Dance and will take place from 3-5:30pm held at the MMAP (MUN Campus), Room 149.

From 2011 – 2017 the CDA is spearheading a nation-wide campaign: “I Love Dance / J’aime la danse”, which is designed to strengthen the visibility of dance organizations and individuals, as well as help develop unique benefits and services that will strengthen collaboration and commitment to the expansion and development of dance as integral to Canadian culture. The project will advance dance through a focus on community inclusiveness, economic effectiveness, outreach and visibility across the country.

This initiative is inclusive of all dance forms and practices. Canadian Dance Assembly is currently touring the country, meeting with dance organizations, key stakeholders and partners in order to help shape the campaign and make it a truly national initiative by and for the dance community.

Don’t miss this opportunity to engage in an ambitious and dynamic visibility campaign for dance. Bring your ideas to the table, network with colleagues, meet new dance enthusiasts and be part of the conversation. Following the presentation of the campaign, participants will divide into working groups in order to actively contribute to the makeup of National Dance Week. Participants will be asked to brainstorm ideas and activities that will feed into the launch of the 2012 National Dance Week.

Admission is ‘pay what you can’ at the door. Please RSVP your attendance to ndw@nfld.net
