Taking Steps to Fly Young Choreographer's Showcase


McInnis Room, Dalhousie Student Union Building


Sunday, February 23 at 7:00pm - 9:30pm


For 15 years, Taking Steps to Fly has been anticipated by young Nova Scotia dancers wishing to spread their creative wings into the world of making dances. This joint project of Dance Nova
Scotia and Kinetic Studio has been the gateway for many young dancers who have gone on to study choreography and build professional dance careers in Canada and abroad. The Showcase performance of the pieces by these young choreographers remains a highlight in the Dance NS and Kinetic Studio Calendars.

This year will see the event return to its early roots, which concentrated on the choreographers and giving them an outlet to show their work. There will not be a competitive element, but will instead focus on the choreographic process and the dance-making experience of creating the pieces that the audience will see during the showcase

“Both Dance Nova Scotia and Kinetic Studio would like to bring a more interactive approach to the one-day event; a chance for professionals to observe the submitted dances and spend time
with the young creators to talk about their piece and the process they experienced. This will give the young creator a chance to ask questions of professionals and to talk about their work with other choreographers whose work is also being presented. We want to create a learning experience that will help them build future dances.”

Come and celebrate the creativity of young Nova Scotian dancers as they put their feet into the waters of creativity. This evening of performances is sure to be an exciting night of dance with another record number of dances submitted. Join Dance NS and Kinetic Studio as we celebrate the work of our young choreographers of tomorrow.

7PM at the McInnis Room (Second floor) of the Dalhousie Student Union Building
