  • Experiencing the power of dance to effect social change
  • Focusing on the need to create a national “water ethic”
  • Using the arts to build community
  • Bringing attention to the importance of arts in education

On April 12, 2014, National Water Dance is an evolution of the 2011 Florida Waterways Dance Project, a statewide, simultaneous, site-specific, performance presented at various water sites around Florida and live streamed on the Internet.

The premise for this project is to bring attention to environmental issues, specifically water, by creating community awareness through the arts. Every state, county, town in the US has a water issue whether it is drought, pollution, overuse etc. Each location will identify the most significant water issue affecting their community and through the creation of the site-specific performance event bring attention to their specific issue.
