Global Water Dances Long Beach 2023
June 10 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Worldwide Dance Event to Inspire Safe Water for All
On June 10, 2023, Global Water Dances will be bringing people together on six continents to perform community-based dances to raise awareness of local and global water issues. Global Water Dances has been holding this event every two years since 2011, with dancers performing worldwide.
Long Beach will be part of this international event! This is the schedule of the day:
11am: Outdoors Yoga with Yogalution (Donation based)
12pm: Free Dance Workshop (no dance experience required)
12:30pm: Free Dance Performance!
1pm: Closing movement
Location: Yoga on the Bluff Park (In front of Bixby Park, Ocean Blvd and Junipero Ave, Long Beach CA 90803).
“We are thrilled to have 130 sites participating this year,” said GWD Artistic Director and Long Beach based artist Vannia Ibarguen. “The magic of this event is that there are dancers performing outdoors, beside a body of water. Dancers and audiences get a heartfelt, somatic connection to the importance of water to our planet. And we’re so happy to be returning to live dancers and audiences after having to gather virtually during the quarantine.”
Ibarguen hailed the launch of the Global Water Dances Education Program, which has begun distributing curricular activities and professional development opportunities for teachers in early childhood, K-12, university, and community-based education. And there is online access to GWD Site Leaders and GWD Educational Leaders committed to participatory arts and environmental activism.
