Community Dance Program “Dance 4 All 2013”

 Dance 4 All, a community dance program held at Kyoto Art Center, began in 2009. Many people, especially local residents, both children and adults, have participated in this program, regardless of age and dancing experience, to experiment with the latest contemporary dancing styles. The purpose of this program is to vitalize the local community by making full use of the power of dance together with artists, on the assumption that anyone can create and participate in community dance, regardless of experience, age, sex or physical condition.
 The program this year will consist of two events, a festival in which community dance works, produced in Kyoto and other regions, will be presented, and workshops for Kyoto work, as described below. Workshops are scheduled for December 2013 and January 2014, facilitated by Mika Kurosawa and Tamami Yamada, both dance choreographers. Intensive practices are planned from the beginning of February 2014 at Kyoto Art Center.
