As a partner of National Water Dance, JDT is worked with Jacksonville University dance students to create a site specific work to join with other movement choirs across the country to raise awareness about water issues affecting our state and globe. A movement choir is a community of people dancing together for a common purpose. First conceived by Rudolf Laban they are often performed outside in celebration of the environment and frequently participants invite the audience to join the dance.
A Celebration Of Arts In Action
April 14, 2018 4PM EST - Jacksonville Location: Memorial Park
National Water Dance is an artist-driven collective of dancers and educators confronting critical water issues facing the United States. Stretching from New York to Hawaii and from Alaska to Puerto Rico we create simultaneous, site-specific dance performances with movers of all ages and experience. Created and directed by Dale Andree, National Water Dance believes that our environment is the most pressing issue of this generation and as dancers we are using our bodies to create a community that reaches out for action.
"It’s about reconnecting our sense of self and soul with our waterways and oceans." - Celine Cousteau, granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau
