What do You Want to Know about Dance?

By Sarah Lochhead, Anastasia Kolotova, Valeria Nunziato

On June 2, Canada’s National Ballet School’s (NBS) hosted Sharing Dance Day at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto. The annual event is NBS’s flagship community outreach initiative, which offers free dance programs to the public. Toronto was just one out of the five cities to host official Sharing Dance events, with other cities including Halifax, Montreal, Winnipeg and Calgary. As part of the event The Dance Current asked attendees to tell us about a dance-related topic or artist they’re interested in learning more about.
