The Department of Dance in Webster University’s Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts invites you to the National Water Dance. The performance will take place at 3 p.m. CDT on Saturday, April 12, 2014, near the Natural Area pond behind the Garden Avenue Parking Garage at 568 Garden Avenue.

National Water Dance is a simultaneous environmental performance across the U.S. to bring attention to the fragility of our waters. Across the United States of America elementary to college age students from Alaska to Maine and from Florida to California will be dancing together as a way to bring attention to our shared need that we must accept and take responsibility for the water we use and enjoy. Around 70 institutions (primarily involving Higher Education) and community partners in 30 states across the United States will participate in the event.

Our community endeavor, led by concerned citizens, is an effort to create a local and national awareness for responsible action to a growing need.

National Water Dance is the brainchild of Dale Andree, founder and director, with Daniel Lewis, producer. This annual nationwide event was inspired by “One River Mississippi (2006),” which was directed by Marylee Hardenberg, artistic director of Global Site Performance.

National Water Dance is a simultaneous, nationwide event celebrating our nation’s waterways and heralding the celebration of Earth Day 2014. For more information on National Water Dance, please visit
