NBS Sharing Dance Day 2021

An interactive celebration of movement and music: May 28, 2021, 12:30 pm (ET)

Welcome to NBS Sharing Dance Day, a national digital broadcast to celebrate the joy, creativity and community of dance. Using your digital device, dance along with Canadian artists as they share and teach a diversity of dance styles, introduce you to new music rhythms, and more. Best of all, no dance experience is required! Since 2010, NBS Sharing Dance Day events have brought together tens of thousands of people in communities from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Click here to learn more about past events. 

This 2021 Sharing Dance Day broadcast is hosted by Canada’s National Ballet School, and programmed in partnership with Arts Umbrella, L'École de danse de Québec, Halifax Dance, and Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB) School.
