Come move move move move with us for 8 hours of fun and dance at our 26th annual Dance Class Marathon. This event is for anyone and everyone over the age of 13 who love to dance and move – yes…beginner to advanced dancers are welcome. There are 23 different classes to choose from. And 8 full hours to get your groove on (but you can do as much or as little as you feel comfortable with).
One of Canada’s most in demand and acclaimed tap dance artists, Danny Nielsen, presents his second full length work entitled On Foot. In collaboration with Toronto based pianist Noah Franche-Nolan, an exciting score of original compositions as well a new take on old jazz standards supports Nielsen’s athletic, smooth and fast paced dancing. Featuring choreography from Nielsen, NYC based artist Lisa La Touche and associate direction by Vancouver’s brilliant Shay Kuebler (Radical System Art), a company of local up and coming tap artists (Laura Donaldson, Connor Denison, Kelly Steele, and Alex Clancy) will add their artistic touch and improvised stylings to the piece. Supported by a live trio, On Foot will leave and leave you feeling energized and inspired.
Danny Nielsen developed On Foot supported in part through the DJD Dance Centre Creative Residency Program .
