As a part of the long and very difficult healing process post-flood and living with COVID, Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre in collaboration with The Lismore Quad is offering a free community dance event next week to celebrate International Dance Day.

This full-day event will give the community an opportunity to engage in the joy of dance led by the Sprung!! ensemble dancers.

To mark International Dance Day each year the global community of dancers, choreographers, dance teachers and students and dance enthusiasts, join together to celebrate inclusion, diversity and dance forms from around the world.

Sprung!! ensemble dancers Tara, Max and Tallula will be offering workshops in jazz fusion, hip-hop/freestyle and contemporary dance accompanied by the rest of the ensemble and Sprung!! Community Dancer team.

There will also be demonstrations of different dance forms from other local Artists.

International Dance Day at The Quad is on Thursday May five and runs from 11am to 3pm and everyone is most welcome to join Sprung!! for a celebration of community and a day of pure joy.
