Today, April 29, 2009 is International Dance Day (World Dance Day) - this date was picked to commemorate the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre. In honour that date, Dance Umbrella of Ontario put on a free show to the public on the Sunday, April 26, 2009.
From their website:
"Dance Umbrella of Ontario (DUO) is proud to present an afternoon of FREE dance activities at Yonge-Dundas Square, featuring a variety of dance forms and Toronto-based performers. On stage and off the stage, the square will be alive with assorted performances, interactive dance presentations, open classes and information on an array of dance styles & traditions. We are excited to share the news that Natalli Reznik and Lisa Auguste of the inaugural season of So You Think You Can Dance Canada will be joining us on Sunday afternoon."
I didn't stay for the whole show but here are some pics from that day.
