LCSD to hold "Dance Day" in Tsuen Wan on December 2
The event will showcase different generations of local dance artists, who will be joined by professional and amateur dance groups and social organisations, in a wide variety of dance performances of different genres. With "Collaboration" as the theme, this year's Dance Day aims at encouraging people to work closely with one another to break down barriers, so that participants can enjoy a new experience together. Local dance artist Andy Wong is the Dance Day Event Advisor.
Entertaining programmes include a variety of dance genres, one-minute flash dance, site-specific dance, an improvisation area, workshops and exhibitions. There will also be a "U Can Dance!" free dancing zone, where everyone is invited to join in and enjoy the fun of dancing, and a new dance theatre entitled "2018 Community Cultural Ambassador Scheme - 'Dance Bao Shan'". Dancers Huang Ju and Liu Heung-man will depict a story with dance to reveal the relationship between "da jiu" and everyday life, culture and society with the aim of passing on this local intangible cultural heritage.
Dance artists and groups at Dance Day include R&T (Rhythm & Tempo), Unlock Dancing Plaza, Y-Space, Muse Motion, the Hong Kong Ballet Group, the Association of Hong Kong Dance Organizations, Hong Kong Dance Federation, School of Dance, the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, Tsuen Wan Culture and Recreation Co-ordinating Association, Hugh Cho and TS Crew, DanceArt Hong Kong, Fun Forest, St James' Settlement Rehabilitation Services Dancing Heart Troupe, PassoverDance, Studiodanz and DancingAngels.
The LCSD has been holding Dance Day since 2009 with the aim of promoting dance art to the public while at the same time providing a platform for local dance artists and small and medium-sized dance groups to perform. Previous Dance Days were held in Tsuen Wan, Yuen Long, Central and Western District, Sha Tin and Tuen Mun. All received an overwhelming public response, effectively raising public interest - especially among the young generation - towards various forms of dance.
