JOIN KSD FOR NATIONAL WATER DANCE DAY on APRIL 14, 2018 in Carkeek Park – A CELEBRATION OF ARTS IN ACTION!
KSD joins over 100 dance institutions from more than four countries and 40 states in this site-specific simultaneous event. The performance will be streamed across inter/national stages through Facebook and YouTube as an integral part of
National Water Dance Day LIVE
This event is FREE and open to the public.
Joined by an array of Seattle dancers and movement artists such asCreative Dance Center/Kaleidoscope Dance Company, Splinter Dance Company, University of Washington Dance Department, eXit SPACE – School of Dance, Khambatta Dance Company, Cornish Prep, Pacific Northwest Ballet faculty, Yi Ren Qigong, and MORE, KSD will create a movement choir spreading along the Carkeek Park Trail and culminating at the beach. With extraordinary views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, Carkeek Park is just nine miles from downtown Seattle. The park’s 220 acres of lush forest, meadows, wetlands, creeks, and beach have been formed by the magic of water and time.
National Water Dance Day is an opportunity for dancers of all ages and movers of all kinds 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. The 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.
The National Water Dance Day Live Streamed Performance Event begins in Carkeek Park at 1pm (PST) on April 14th.
Above is a map of Carkeek Park with the route The Movement Choir will take along with suggested parking area. We encourage everyone attending to consider busing, biking, walking or car sharing to the event as parking is limited in the park itself.
The Movement Choir begins at 1pm on PIPER’S CREEK TRAIL with the start point between 103rd and 105th, moves through LOWER MEADOW, WETLAND TRAIL and will end at the BEACH.
