Blog Guelph: Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival

Friday!
Phewf.

Do you know what's delightful?
Beyond our gardens bursting beyond belief, our feet moving from boot to sandal, and the irrepressible sense of hopefulness of course...what is especially delightful to me is that it's the time of year for the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival to explode upon our parks, streets, studios and stages.

So head on down to Exhibition Park this coming Thursday, at 7pm to witness dance groups that use the grass and the trees to tell their story. If you have to miss that evening performance, it is repeated again at noon on both Saturday and Sunday.

Come visit my hood Friday at noon in St. George's Square Downtown, and witness emerging choreographers In The Street, where..."ideas and bodies bounce off old stone and new concrete to create a community-engaging spectacle."

These are both pay what you can performances.

And please do not miss the world-class performances On The Stage at the River Run Centre both Friday and Saturday night.

Dance people, dance!
