Announcing Dance Week 2024

Dance Nova Scotia Announces 2024 Dance Week Nominations Now Open for 2024 Dance Ambassador

Halifax, NS— October 23, 2023 — Dance Nova Scotia is thrilled to announce Nova Scotia Dance Week, happening across Nova Scotia beginning Friday April 20th and culminating with International Dance Day on April 29th.
Started as part of the UNESCO International Theatre Institute’s International Dance Day, Dance Week is a celebration of dance for everyone, and an opportunity to learn about the social, physical, and emotional benefits of dance. Dance Week is also an important opportunity to raise awareness about its immense cultural and societal significance.
Included within the Nova Scotia Dance Week is the “Dare to Dance” school challenge. “With dance, everyone should be able to feel its positive impact,” says Dance Nova Scotia Executive Director Kenney Fitzpatrick. “With Dare to Dance, we are challenging students, teachers, and even admin, to get creative and find 20 minutes within Dance Week for everyone in your school to dance”.
Each year inspiring members of the Nova Scotia dance community are chosen as dance week ambassadors, and Dance Nova Scotia is looking to the community for their nominations. Dance Ambassadors become the face of the Nova Scotia Dance Week, and can be any age, any ability, any discipline, and from any community. Through the stories of their love and passion of dance we encourage others throughout Nova Scotia to embrace dance for all of its many benefits.
