International Dance Day 2018

29-Apr-2018 - 29-Apr-2018

Since 2005, the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA) has issued a message on behalf of the dance community in Canada as part of International Dance Day, which takes place annually on April 29th. This year, CDA invited Vivine Scarlett of dance Immersion to share her inspirational message to all Canadians!

“The universal movement of dance releases the very essence of what is all around us. It connects and weaves so deep that one can feel the wisdom, patience and graciousness of its flow. With each move made there is a giving and receiving communication in that universal experience. Dance is a vehicle that lends itself to learning about oneself. It helps us move through life's experiences by expressing our stories and our history, by commenting on our present and nurturing our future.

Dance for you.
Dance for us.
Just dance and let the rhythm of our spirits soar in the movement of DANCE.”
 - Vivine
