A Fringe Contest Worth Dancing About!

By Crystal Wood

The Fringe Festival isn’t just for theatre lovers.  Thanks to the Fringe Dance Initiative, 11 dance shows are also a part of this year’s festival.

To encourage people to see these shows (as if I needed any encouragement), the Fringe is holding a contest.  Here’s how it works.

Attend a dance show at the Fringe, and you will receive a stamp card with 5 empty boxes.  Each time you attend one of the dance shows, hang around after and ask one of the performers to stamp or sign your card.  Once you’ve filled all 5 boxes, give it to one of the dance artists or drop it off at the Dance Umbrella of Ontario (490 Adelaide Street W.)

What can you win?  How does a trip sound?  (To Ottawa, Montreal or Quebec City.)  You could also win a spa package, tickets to a dance performance, or an aerial dance lesson.
