PROJECT DANCE CALGARY
This three day event gathers professional, pre-professional and aspiring dancers for training, performances and networking. The weekend is centered around an all day open air dance concert that is free to the public featuring local and international dance artistry in ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop and tap. Dancers gather with a common vision: to bring hope and healing through the universal language of dance. In 2018 Project Dance will present concerts in Houston, New York City, Orlando, Greenville, Oklahoma City, Costa Rica, Taiwan, Paris, Lima and Calgary.
