Over 5,000 students from across the Thames Valley system are dusting off their dancing
shoes for the 41st Annual Dance Festival, to be held at the Education Centre April
Dance Festival gives students the opportunity to perform live for their families
and friends. The Dance Festival will be streamed live during the performances, allowing
fellow students and distant relatives to watch their dance clubs on their computers.
Schools can provide specific times when students will be dancing so friends and
family can also share in the event. The complete schedule will also be available
on the TVDSB Athletics web page.
Eighty schools from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 will celebrate their enjoyment
of dance in this non-competitive format. In addition, there are several high schools
from across Thames Valley performing throughout the week. The festival provides
a great opportunity to showcase and promote dance programs that can be continued
at the secondary level.
Please note that some performances may not be streamed due to privacy issues.
