I Love Dance

Dear Montreal and beyond,

J.D. Papilion is our newest co-host, and you’ve heard him on air with us for the past few weeks.  We take the opportunity this week to properly introduce him, and discover his background, inspirations and interests.  Welcome to the team J.D.!

Next Jenn tells us about the Canadian Dance Assembly and their new national campaign, I Love Dance.  Their goal is to increase the visibility and support of the dance industry in the context of Canadian culture.  They are launching the I Love Dance Awards in Ottawa in October.  There are a ton of categories, and you are welcome to submit your nominations anytime before September of this year, so go to their website and make sure that credit is given where it us due.

Then we talk about the upcoming Agora 2012 Fall Season.  There is a lot to get excited about, and Allison gives her perspective on what to look out for.

After that, Jenn list some Canadian dance award winners mentioned in The Dance Current.  It’s important to recognize amazing work and artists, and give them encouragement to keep creating.  Congratulations to all the award recipients!

We finished off this episode with Allison and J.D.’s highlights for the upcoming Tangente 2012-2013 Season.  We just can’t wait!

Take care,

Allison Burns, Jenn Doan and J.D. Papillon
