Our dance class marathon has deep roots. Join us November 18th.
Now for the history lesson:
Dance marathons are events in which people dance or walk to music for an extended period of time. Dance marathons, endurance movement contests, and derbies can be traced back to London in 1364. They started as dance contests in the 1920s and developed into entertainment events during the Great Depression in the 1930s. Before the development of “reality shows”, dance marathons blurred the line between theatre and reality. Also known as endurance contests, dance marathons attracted people to compete as a way to achieve fame or win monetary prizes.
DJD is committed to bringing community together in our beautiful facility. Join us for our 3rd annual YYC Dance Community Concert featuring dance artists from across disciplines and at many different points in their Careers. Come and experience the vibrancy and energy that lives and breathes within Calgary’s dance community.
