The Global Water Dances Worldwide event will be linked throughout the day via broadcast media and the internet. This event will challenge countless observers, locally and online, to deepen their understanding about the importance of water in human communities.
Each local event invites participation, teaches about our local and/or worldwide water crises and inspires imagination. Taking responsibility for valuing and protecting water flows easily into other ways of caring for the plant (carbon footprint, recycling, etc). Local communities will be encouraged not only to dance but also to find ways to take action to solve their immediate water challenges, thinking globally while acting locally.
We invite choreographers, dance groups, community organizations, environmentalists, artists, musicians, water activists and all that are interested to join in and participate. Each Global Water Dances, choreographers and dancers from each participating site in New York present, teach and engage. Each event reflects the importance of water as seen by that local community and in the eco-systems we share. In each location we invite participation to help spread the word about our local and/or worldwide water challenges. Join the Global Water Dances team as activist, audience, performer or helper.CLICK HERE TO JOIN
