Happy Mother Day
While whispers of winter still float in the air, spring has sprung, bringing crocuses, pelicans and bountiful earthly delights.
From all of us at NDH we wish you HAPPY MOTHERS DAY and extend a warm welcome to STREAM OF DANCE.
In celebrating mothers and mothering around the globe, today's PART III of a tiny world's fair celebrates women and some of the great mothers of the contemporary dance including the Delorme Women's Pow Wow dances and short dance video entitled eclipse.
New Dance Horizons has selected three dance films for their Stream of Dance festival! Strike A Pose, Breath Made Visible & Pina are free to watch with your RPL library card on Kanopy!
Co-curated by Robin Poitras, Gary Varro & Sylvain Bleau.
Regina Public Library, in partnership with New Dance Horizon's Stream of Dance 2020, Queer City Cinema, and Cinédanse.
On the occasion of the International Dance Day, New Dance Horizons (NDH) is excited to present:
In 1982 the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day
to be celebrated every year on the 29th
April, the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), creator of modern ballet. The intention of the International Dance Day Message is to celebrate dance, revel in the universality of this art form, cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers, and bring people together with a common language - dance.
