DECEMBER AT THE DJD DANCE CENTRE
With the holiday season upon us, the DJD Dance Centre continues to be a true hub for the arts community in Calgary. Check out what’s happening throughout December:
In this seasons performance, Alberta Dance Theatre is joined by a zen master panda for a journey into mindfulness. Stumbled upon by the ADT dancers, Pan imparts his wisdom to those around him through ancient stories and anecdotes revealing tales of zen and impossible questions. Stories of generosity, friendship and fate are woven together into a contemplative journey for both dancers and audience. Through shadow puppets, starfish, monks, a giant snow globe, 43 dancers and a zen master panda, Alberta Dance Theatre uncovers a whimsical yet accessible perspective on mindfulness and zen.
The Calgary Men’s Chorus presents A Christmas Carol
Join the Calgary Men’s Chorus for a creative retelling of the Charles Dicken’s classic, “A Christmas Carol.” Written in collaboration with film director Seth Michael Donsky and featuring actor/professor James Dugan as Scrooge, this performance tells the story of a mean spirited old man who is visited by a number of ghosts on Christmas Eve. It is through their visions of the past, present, and future (along with some fantastic singing by the CMC) that Scrooge learns the true spirit of the season.
Be a part of Calgary’s newest December tradition and brighten up your holiday season with The SHOW (and special guest artist, Lexi Strate). The SHOW will be singing and dancing to classic Christmas songs and new favourites, while journeying acrossCanada. This high-energy, family-friendly show will be a pleasure for the eyes and ears. See what everyone has been talking about! Don’t miss seeing The SHOW in a full spectacle of sound and movement at their annual Christmas celebration, Let It SHOW!
