Sharing Dance Day 2019
Paul O'Regan Hall, Halifax Central Library
Saturday, June 15 at 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Every year Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) commissions the creation of an original piece of Canadian choreography and supports individuals and communities across the country as they learn and perform the piece on NBS Sharing Dance Day. Dance Nova Scotia is excited to be taking part in this national celebration of dance, and we invite you to join us! This year there is an afternoon of festivities at the Central library in HRM.
We believe that dance is a fun and physical way for people of all ages to get moving. We also believe that NBS's Sharing Dance Day will encourage more people to participate in dance classes in their communities. Our goal is to help Canadians to recognize and value dance as an effective way to get healthy, active and artistically engaged.
SO WHY GET INVOLVED IN NBS SHARING DANCE DAY?
It’s a fun way to demonstrate the relevance of dance to all Canadians
It’s an opportunity to support and connect with your community
You will be part of a national celebration of Canadian dance
This year’s special choreography was created by artists Esie Mensah and Philippe Alexandre-Jacques. The choreography for 2019 is particularly meaningful as it explores the theme of Roots and Identity, providing a platform to discuss how our familial, cultural and community roots influence our identity.
