SPRING HOT TICKETS: Dance your way into the Cherry Blossom Festival
Do you dream of taking your place in public with hundreds of other dancers? Your wish can come true, but it takes practice!
To become one of the dancers in the World Umbrella Dance during the 2013 Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, rehearsals start February 26 at the False Creek Community Centre.
Shiamak Davar Dance Team leads this pop-up event, which takes place in the grand setting of the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza on April 13 and bounces to a Bollywood beat with live taiko drumming by Tetsu Taiko.
The Cherry Blossom Festival is April 4 to 30 and includes food, dance, plain-air painting, a photo contest and a haiku contest.
