Were heading to Commonwealth!

Team Canada is excited to once again compete in the Commonwealth Cup Dance Championships (CCDC).  The CCDC is an event that takes the best dancers from the Commonwealth Nations to compete.  


We are planning on taking established teams from the 2018 World Championship teams and auditioning to replace the dancers that are unable to go.  This saves some choreography fees.


Tiffany McLachlan will also be holding auditions to be a part of her team that will be returning to defend their Championship title!  She is focusing on Contemporary, Jazz and Lyrical.


Any studios may bring a group of their own dancers as well.  Please contact Bonnie@cdo-online.org if this is something that may interest you.


CCDC is a DANCE CUP competition.  This means that it is run more like our competitions, where you dance once and are awarded placement.  We will still be awarded on the podiums.  Overall dancers will compete in the final DANCE-OFF at the GALA on the final day of competition.  There are awards for everyone, including ribbons, medals and/or trophies, and cash awards for top 3's.  Dancers may enter in any genre they wish and may dance as often as they want.  Entry fees are separate.  Workshops are available from renown dance educators from around the Commonwealth.  


THE DIFFERENCE:  The WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS we regularly attend are considered the "Olympics of Dance".  Each nation can only bring 3 of their top athletes for a week of intensive competition in one genre.  The competition is fierce, unlike any other!  The CCDC will be bringing together many of the same dancers to this competition, but they will be allowed to bring more dancers that can dance in more categories.  Dancers from Canada, Gibraltar, Australia, South Africa and Malaysia have gone head to head for first place many times!!


The cost for Team Travel is comparable to World Championship Team Travel because the Canadian Dollar is worth more than the South African Rand.  For more information, contact canadaworlddance@gmail.com

A Choreographer's Creative Process in Real Time | Wayne McGregor | TED Talks


We all use our body on a daily basis, and yet few of us think about our physicality the way Wayne McGregor does. He demonstrates how a choreographer communicates ideas to an audience, working with two dancers to build phrases of dance, live and unscripted, on the TEDGlobal stage
