This Sunday is International Dance Day - a timely and wonderful reminder that dance is an ancient form of expression rooted in community celebration and that Guelph has an entire festival dedicated to this wonderful fusion of mind and body.

With only a month to go, now would be an excellent time to get your tickets for the upcoming Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival - slated for May 31 - June 3. There's an incredible selection of both ticketed and complimentary events to enjoy in various venues around the city including Exhibition Park and St. George's Square downtown.

And I'm told that this year’s festival is dedicated to children, an idea whose day has finally come, according to the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival. “Our festival is very child-friendly: : Fully half of our performances take place in parks and in public squares, places where children don’t have to contain their exuberance and their genuine fascination with the beauty and rhythm of dance,” comments artistic director, Catrina von Radecki.

Check out the festival website for the line up, then get out your calendar. Trust me - if you want to be uplifted, you really want to catch as much of the festival as your time will permit.
