This presentation will expose High School students to quality dance and drama, underlining the importance of Post Secondary Education and York’s Concurrent Education Program, as well as to raise awareness of Alzheimer's disease and the value of donations to the Alzheimer's Society. The dance presentation will consist of a 10 minute duet, following a short explanation of the demonstration piece and will include a description of how this project originated, the choreographic process and how the integration of theatre has aided the dancers emotionally to connect with the dance. This performance will showcase the York University BFA Dance Program and the other courses offered within the York arts department.
