Join the movement at NBS Sharing Dance Day 2019!
Canada’s National Ballet School’s (NBS) Sharing Dance Day is the nation’s largest dance party. Communities gather to celebrate dance, appreciate local artists, and connect with one another through the power of dance.
Happiness is when we dance! NBS believes that everyone should have access to the physical, emotional and social benefits of dance. NBS Sharing Dance Day is your chance to discover the joy of dance while connecting with your community!
Ballet BC believes the same and is excited to announce that the NBS Sharing Dance Day 2019 will take place on Friday, May 31.
Each year, a team of passionate Canadian choreographers create a piece of choreography that embodies a thoughtful theme. 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.
