It Starts With A Splash, And Ends in a Wave!
2021 is our sixth event and our 10th year working and dancing together for safe water!
Because of this, Global Water Dances is extending our single day event into a full week of festivities. Our new festival will run from World Ocean’s Day on Tuesday, June 8th through Sunday, June 13th.
The First Day’s Event
We are currently preparing a special new dance, a Splash Mob, created by our community of choreographers and Site Leaders, to be performed live and on social media. It will be an international collaborative effort of ten movements that everybody will be able to join in and perform, by yourself, or in a group!
The Final Day’s Event
This year, the Global Water Dances (GWD) Performances will be shown in a Film Showing from June 9 to June 11. On June 12, the GWD Performances at each site will highlight a local water issue and take place near a related body of water. Choreographers, dance groups, climate and community action organizations, water activists and members of the community will gather to take action, to solve their immediate water problems. On June 13, all participants from around the world, will be able to join virtually from their own locations and dance, even socially distanced, to send the message of safe water for everyone, everywhere!
This worldwide event, linked throughout the day via broadcast and social media, will challenge countless observers, locally and globally, to deepen their understanding about the importance of water in communities the world over.
