National Dance Week @ Flato
Yesterday we held two workshops and two performances at Flato Markham Theatre. There were 50 workshop participants and 600 in audience. We saw students of all ages learn earnestly the intricacy of Chinese ethnic dances, and had a great time discovering their body control. Time flew by so quickly when everyone had fun! Coincidentally, two young students asked the same question in both the morning and evening Q&A sessions:”What inspired you to dance?” Wow, such a simple and yet profound inquiry, forcing our dancers to reflect as far back as possible the reason why they danced in the first place. It was refreshing to see how the dancers and young audience inspired each other.
