CONFESSIONS OF A DANCER

Have you ever seen dance on stage? It is a beautiful work of art created with powerful movements, dazzling costumes and the elegant poise. And the dancer who is performing makes it look so effortless and easy, right? Well…we have a confession to make… We’ve had LOTS of moments where moves seemed unatainable, sewing costumes pushed our time management to the limits and elegant poise was replaced with an ‘ooops-I-missed-my-cue’ face.

Come and join DancEgypt and hear the stories of our dancers’ journeys to the stage. You’ll hear heartwarming moments from the dance studio and tales of backstage debauchery (you’ve always wondered what goes on behind the scenes, right?) and of course we will share with you many beautiful dances that have inspired us throughout our journey.

A HUGE thanks to Shaw TV Saskatoon for putting this together and helping our dancers tell their story. This video will show you how dance is more than music and movement. Through laughter and tears it leaves a lasting impact on the minds, bodies and spirits of those who connect to it.
