I love dance/ J’aime la danse is a unique six year national campaign for dance that engages all dance lovers and dancers alike and supports the principles outlined in the Dance Manifesto. The campaign is the first of its kind, bringing all dance styles and supporters together in a movement to raise the profile of dance in Canada. It represents diverse backgrounds, interests, and abilities for the first time with a united voice and message, in support of dance as an art form integral to Canadian culture.
Join the Canadian Dance Assembly and show your support for the I love dance/J’aime la danse National campaign. You can participate by visiting our blog, joining our social media, use the I love dance logo on your media, distribute and circulate the dance Manifesto, Vote for Dance, organize an event for National Dance Week or participate in the I love dance Awards.
Voting for dance in Canada demonstrates that you agree with the principles highlighted in the Dance Manifesto, that you recognize the importance of dance in the lives of Canadians. You may vote for the social cohesion that dance brings, for its community engagement, how it reaches youth or seniors, its inclusiveness, how it embraces healthy living, or how it provides jobs and employment. When you vote for dance, you add your voice to the hundreds of individuals in Canada that want us to speak on their behalf. Dancers have the shortest careers, wages are the lowest, and many dance companies /individual dancers suffer extreme financial fragility. When it comes to convincing public leaders about the necessity of dance in our Canadian culture, the importance of reinforcing dance in education, subsidizing health insurance programs, or access to Touring funding, CDA needs a critical mass of people raising their voice…don’t wait : VOTE NOW! Please join our causes campaign through facebook, and also vote for dance on Change.org.
