*Silver collection for the Recreational Division Opportunity Fund at each performance.

This is your opportunity to view the pieces that will participate in Manitoba Dance Festival. Tickets are free of charge.

We are very pleased to announce that this year’s Festival Preview Silver Collection will be put toward the newly established Recreational Division Opportunity Fund. The Recreational Division Opportunity Fund was created to ensure that as many young people as possible have access to quality dance programming at the RWB School. Applicants will be asked to submit a letter outlining the circumstances of their financial need and bursaries will be distributed at the discretion of RWB School staff.”

International Dance Day (World Dance Day) Initiated in 1982 by the International Dance Committee of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute (http://www.iti-worldwide.org/), International Dance Day falls on April 29 of every year, commemorating the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre, a distinguished choreographer that brought about significant reforms in ballet production. Among the goals of the Dance Day are to increase the awareness of the importance of dance among the general public, as well as to persuade governments all over the world to provide a proper place for dance in all systems of education.

Every year, an international message authored by a well-known dance personality is circulated around the world as part of International Dance Day celebrations. Additionally, since 2005, the Canadian Dance Assembly has issued a Canadian message in conjunction with the UNESCO message. “Dance has the rare and precious power to unite people of all ages, cultures and religions and has an intrinsic value to Canadian society.” Yvon Zoglo, Crazy Smooth.

The Canadian Dance Assembly proudly presents the first ever National Dance Week leading up to International Dance Day on April 29 2012 as part of the I love dance/J’aime la danse National Campaign. Stay tuned for how the RWB will be participate in this exciting initiative.
