Update: Ukiyo: Floating World

Over seventy students from Guelph, Waterloo and Toronto are coming together for a very brief period of time to share their creative passions.

Guelph choreographer Meghan MacNeil is working with young dancers from Moree School of Dance, Contemporary School of Dance, Carousel Dance Centre, Guelph Youth Dance Company, The Guelph Academy of Dance and YMI Dancing in the creation of Floating World, to be presented at the 2021 Guelph Dance Festival Youth Moves series due to the cancellation of the 2020 Festival.

A “Floating bridge of dreams” is a sentiment we are using to build a universe from the ground up, strangers arriving, finding common ground, travelling, living in chaos and understanding. Be swept up by the energy and power these young artists bring to every moment!

Check out footage of their rehearsals pre-COVID 19 to see how the work is coming together.

The video features all schools except YMI Dancing and was shot and edited by Meghan MacNeil herself!

Thanks for this sneak peak at the work in progress!
