The BIG DANCE on Broadway

Inviting Winnipeg to come downtown and dance it up

WINNIPEG –September 2, 2010 – Just two weeks after the success of the first ever River Barge Festival, the Winnipeg Cultural Capital of Canada 2010 will present another major event in the spirit of ARTS FOR ALL.

On September 11, The Big Dance on Broadway will be presented as a part of the Lights on Broadway celebration. With two dance floors and two live music stages, Winnipeggers will be invited to come downtown and dance it up.

“We wanted to see people dancing in the streets on one of Winnipeg’s grand avenues,” says Dominic Lloyd, project manager for the Winnipeg Cultural Capital of Canada 2010. “It’s going to be a great party to celebrate the arts and Winnipeg.”

One of the stages will hark back to the grandiose days of Winnipeg’s dance halls of the 20s and 30s (Memorial and Broadway), while the other one will evoke the classic days of disco (Carlton and Broadway). The music will range from Latin, to country, to hip-hop to big band and dance groups will be giving demonstrations and lessons so that everyone can take part.

“Winnipeggers will have the chance to dance the night away in the heart of downtown,” says Lloyd. “It’s going to be a special night with incredible music and the scenery to match.”
