Dance Day to add vitality to Tuen Mun (with photos)

     Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), Dance Day will be held from 1pm to 5pm on March 1 (Sunday) at Tuen Mun Town Hall. Admission is free. Members of the public are invited to come along and dance in Tuen Mun.

     Under the theme "Walk in Dance Out", this year's Dance Day focuses on social integration and pop dance. The LCSD has invited local veteran dance artist Andy Wong to serve as the Event Advisor, while pop artist Di2da will be the Image Ambassador. Di2da will also perform during the opening of the event.

     A variety of carnival-like programmes will include a parade, a dance showcase, free-dancing zone "U Can Dance!", environmental dance performances, an interactive corner "One Minute Flash Dance", modern dance performances, exhibitions and workshops. In addition to performer Andy Wong, Dance Day will also bring together many dance artists of the new generation including Rainbow Blue, Chen Kai, Hugh Cho, Cyrus Hui, Ivanhoe Lam, Max Lee, Cherry Leung, Jo Leung, Elaine Kwok, Ivy Tsui as well as local dance groups including the Association of Hong Kong Dance Organizations, Dancing Angels, DanceArt Hong Kong, E-Side Dance Company, Hong Kong Ballet, Hong Kong Dance Federation, Muse Motion, Passoverdance, Rhythm & Tempo, the School of Dance of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, Studiodanz, the Hong Kong Ballet Group, Tuen Mun Arts Promotion Association, UniDancity, Unlock Dancing Plaza and Y-Space.

     The popular "One Minute Flash Dance" will be featured at this year's Dance Day for everyone to learn a one-minute dance. Instructors from Studiodanz will teach the dance movements on stage every hour and invite everyone to take part in the dance finale of the event. Anyone who wants to learn the dance movements for the dance finale beforehand can see the demonstration clips on the LCSD's Cultural Presentations Section website at or on its Facebook fan page at .

     The LCSD first held Dance Day in 2009 with the aim of promoting dance art to the public while at the same time providing a platform for dance artists and small and medium-sized local dance troupes to perform. The last five Dance Days were held in Tsuen Wan, Yuen Long, Central and Western District and Sha Tin, and all received an overwhelming public response, effectively raising public interest, especially among the younger generation, towards various forms of dance.
