INTERNATIONAL DANCE DAY LAUNCH at Yonge and Dundas Square, April 26, 2009
DUO is pleased to announce the third annual International Dance Day celebrations in Yonge-Dundas Square! We are now accepting applications from artists to perform and teach at our launch event on Sunday, April 26th in Toronto. The performances and workshops will take place outdoors in Yonge-Dundas Square, on the stage. There may also be designated areas off stage for B-Boys or other dance activities, if requested. We are currently seeking funding to offer honorariums to our participating artists.
We want to represent all dance in Toronto and make this a great event, building on last year’s model. We have expanded our activities to include 4 days of events, the Yonge-Dundas Square event being the largest and launching Toronto into 4 days of diverse artist-lead activities. If you are interested in hosting additional free public activities in your community and/or neighbourhood on April 26th, 27th, 28th and/or 29th, please contact us to be included in our outreach public promotions.
International Dance Day is a UNESCO designated day for celebrating dance and dance artists. People worldwide are encouraged to experience dance, whether it is dancing in the streets or going to see a live performance.
