Five Taken at #DanceWeekend17

       Join us at Dance Ontario's Dance Weekend 17'! We have programmed emerging artist Jocelyn Mah to represent New Blue Emerging Dance at the festival. Jocelyn's work is masterfully crafted to the complex tunes of "Take Five" and "Blue Rondo A La Turk". This piece heavily draws upon the complexity of the musical arrangement as the dancers embody the piece to their fullest. Want an in depth, sneak peak look at the work? Check out our teaser video HERE.
