2021 Festival Sept 17-18

The Centre of Movement Arts presents the 2021 London Dance Festival

Friday September 17
5-6:30pm Dance Mob Workshop & Performance*
Location: Dundas Place in front of Budweiser Gardens
*Please bring your own pool noodle to dance with!
FREE

In this workshop you’ll learn a fun and easy dance while holding a pool noodle. The noodles will be an amusing way to make sure we all stay safely 2 metres apart while dancing. Once everyone has learned the moves, we’ll head down the street for a surprise performance featuring local rapper Big Lou live on the mic! Open to all ages and experience levels. Please bring your own pool noodle.
