Come Join Us

National Water Dance is creating an opportunity for young artists to experience the power of art and performance as a vehicle for social change by collaborating on the formation of a nation wide movement choir. Our goal is to initiate a national “water ethic” that can inform and inspire both participants and audience members to take responsibility for conserving and protecting the water that they use and enjoy.

What is a movement choir?

A movement choir is a community of people dancing together for a common purpose. First conceived by Rudolf Laban they are often performed outside in celebration of the environment and frequently participants invite the audience to join the dance.

How will we do this?

We will be initiating our movement choir by connecting with one another through the Internet and sharing movement phrases and gestures. These movements will be the source from which a common dance phrase will be created and one that everyone around the country will share in their choreographic process.

This is a celebration of arts in action!
