Intersection Dance - Burlington

Sep 21, 2016

"The Burlington Performing Arts Centre hosted events outdoors on our Plaza called Intersection Dance. These events had a wonderful community spirit and captured the interest of many passersby. People were dancing with people they had just met and people they knew well, outside in the sunshine. There was a felt joy and appreciation from all for the opportunity to dance."  Megan English  Dance Animator
