Home / Uncategorized / BE ENCHANTED! – DUSK DANCES Hamilton 2018

 

For the fifth year running, Hamilton Dusk Dances takes to the park this weekend!

What the Toronto Star rightly calls “A National Phenomenon” has local heart with Hamilton artist participation.  “Time Flies”, one of five pieces in this year’s outdoor dance festival is created and performed by Hamilton dance artists.* And the music stylings of local band, The Steel Rovers, kicks things off each evening with a cross-pollination of Celtic and North American traditions.

“It’s really wonderful to see this festival thrive and bring together artists from across the country, so audiences across the region can enjoy dance – out in the park on a summer night,” says HCA Dance Theatre Artistic Director, Vitek Wincza. “We are delighted and proud to both host this wonderful festival and to showcase our local talent.”
