From May 29 to June 1, the city of Guelph came alive with the extraordinary art of dance.

It was impossible not to become inspired by the dancers who performed. I had goosebumps on multiple occasions, despite the perfect summer weather we were blessed with.  The festival was an unforgettable one, brimming with heaps of inventiveness, entertainment and talent.

As a dancer myself, the challenge that comes from performing in unusual venues is not lost on me. Grass, pavement, a downtown dance studio, a living room, and even in and around a parked car were all unexpected locales for movement, and the dancers performed flawlessly. It was so uplifting to witness Guelph become enlivened with spins, leaps, kicks, pops and struts.

I want to commend all of the brilliant artists/performers who animated our city with such beauty. A thank you also to my enormously talented partner, Chris Seto, who shot this festival with me.
