NATIONAL WATER DANCE is a site-specific simultaneous event across the United States that will be live streamed on the Internet.

What is the NATIONAL WATER DANCE?

A Celebration of Arts in Action

National Water Dance (NWD) is a collective of dance artists and educators. Stretching from coast to coast and from Alaska to Florida we are creating a “movement choir”, a simultaneous, site-specific performance of dancers and movers of all ages and experience, to bring attention to the pressing issues of water in the United States. National Water Dance believes that our environment is the most urgent issue of this generation and that artists need to take the lead in addressing it. As dancers we want to use our bodies to create a community that cries out for action.

THE 2016 EVENT National Water Dance

Come Join Us

National Water Dance is creating an opportunity for dancers of all ages and movers of all kinds to experience the power of art and performance as a vehicle for social change by collaborating on the formation of a nation wide movement choir. Our goal is to initiate a national “water ethic” that can inform and inspire both participants and audience members to take responsibility for conserving and protecting the water that they use and enjoy.

What is a movement choir?

A movement choir is a community of people dancing together for a common purpose. First conceived by Rudolf Laban they are often performed outside in celebration of the environment and frequently participants invite the audience to join the dance.

How will we do this?

We will be initiating our movement choir by connecting with one another through the Internet and sharing movement phrases and gestures. These movements will be the source from which a common dance phrase will be created and one that everyone around the country will share in their choreographic process.

When will it happen?

This site-specific simultaneous event across the United States will occur on April 16, 2016, and will be live streamed on the Internet.
