#hpecod, 25th Celebration of Dance, Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Excitement is building among students about the upcoming Celebration of Dance.

EVENT DETAILS
DATE: Wednesday, May 6, 2015 (rain date is the next day)
TIME: 11:30 a.m.
LOCATION: Belleville Fairgrounds

It’s all about being active and having fun. That’s the purpose of Celebration of Dance. If you have never seen it, try to get there. You will see thousands of students dancing in unison, dressed in their school colours and having fun!

Ten dances are in the line-up this year:

  • Dynamite
  • Cotton Eyed Joe
  • Happy
  • Crazy Frog
  • YMCA
  • Treasure (created by Athol-South Marysburgh Public School)
  • Move It
  • Funky Matador
  • Footloose
  • Cha Cha
  • Shake it Off

Students and teachers have been practising for several weeks. They learn the dances by watching videos.

The moments will be captured tweeted through the hashtag #hpecod. Volunteers from the Education Centre are helping with pedestrian traffic, security, being stage hosts and generally getting people and participants to where they need to be.

The first Celebration of Dance took place in spring 1991 and has been an annual event since then. It is a fun and safe way to engage students in daily physical activity while supporting the physical education, and drama and dance curriculum.

Thank you to all volunteers, in particular Cogeco Belleville for the support in capturing the event on video. It will be available to watch on Cablevue 4.
