More than 60 hours of programming, between April 20 and 29, will mark the celebrations in Braga of the International Dance Day, with the aim of showing the work developed by the schools of the county, the municipality announced today.
In a statement, the municipality stresses that this is another edition of the “B Dance“, an initiative that results from a partnership between the chamber and 18 schools and dance groups of the county.
“The ‘B Dance’ is a showcase of what is done at the level of dance in our city. It is also an opportunity for the public to enjoy open classes, workshops, exhibitions, contests and shows of the different proposals of the world of dance” said Lídia Dias, a councillor for Culture, quoted in the statement.
From the program, the municipality highlights the photography exhibition of José Frade, from the José Saramago Foundation, about Pina Bausch, which will be open to the public from April 18 to May 19 at Livraria Centésima Página.
Another of the highlights is the Final Gala of the “Dreams in Feet” Contest, scheduled for April 28, at Theatro Circo, an initiative of the Municipality of Braga that aims to reward the talent of young people in the dance area.
The urban dance championship is another of the “B Dance” proposals.
International Dance Day is celebrated on April 29th.
