OHDC presents: Dancing with the Varsity Blues

By ohdc
Comments Off on OHDC presents: Dancing with the Varsity Blues

Once upon a time, everyone thought that varsity athletes don’t dance, and dance is not a sport. No one imagined them dancing to raise money for charity…until now.

We are currently looking for 10 Varsity Blues athletes to cast in our first-ever show to be held on February 7th at the Cat’s Eye Pub & Lounge (Victoria College). No dance experience necessary, we’re just looking for athletes who are open to learning and having fun!

Inspired by the hit TV franchise “Dancing with the Stars”, we’ll pair a Varsity Athlete with a “Pro” from our dance company to learn the steps to a short partner routine over a few weeks, in 1 of 6 dance styles. Then, they will dance their hearts out to win the judges’ and audience’s votes which will decide which team will win it all!  Proceeds from the ticket sales go towards charity WE: Free the Children. Potential prizes TBC in January.

If you’re interested, be sure to sign up here (only a few spots left!): https://goo.gl/forms/qbSbl1qbs7zYTCAn2

OHDC 2014/2015 Season’s Theme: ‘TAKING FLIGHT’

By ohdc

“The fluttering sparrow. The start of a new chapter in one’s life. The spiralling of a fighter plane. The survivor’s tale of escape. These phenomena are manifestations of flight which require an incredible amount of courage, strength, and hard work to achieve and are truly captivating to behold. In this respect, dance is synonymous with flight. A dancer must be courageous, strong, and hard working from the moment they begin learning choreography to the very last movement of a performance.

Whether you are a choreographer, dancer or just a fan, we welcome you to join us this year on our journey!
