Why I dance... Pourquoi je danse...

Here’s a little pick-you-up for International Dance Day (World Dance Day), which is right around the corner. April 29th was chosen to commemorate the birthday of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810), known as The Grandfather of the Ballet.The Ontario Arts Council (OAC) created this video for the Ontario Dances program, reflecting here some of the province’s dance organizations, dancers and choreographers. The video further notes: “In 2013, the Ontario Arts Council will celebrate 50 years of support to the hundreds of artists and arts organizations across the province. … OAC support helps ensure that dance lovers throughout the province have access to their work.”
