At 10 am at Serpentine Wall this Saturday (6/22), a free event will take place that will help “bring awareness to the critical issues of pure, clean, safe available drinking water.” Global Water Dances is, as the name suggests, a worldwide event, with more than 60 cities participating this year. Starting at 10am and lasting about an hour, the performances will include music and dance, and along with addressing the issue of water quality the performance will be a celebration of water.
It’s no coincidence, then, that the performance will take place at the Ohio River. The event kicks off the Paddlefest Finish Line Festival, and more than 3000 kayakers will be floating behind the performance, creating a moving backdrop honoring our river.
Global Water Dance will include more than 100 choreographers, dancers, musicians, visual artists and key environmental groups in the Greater Cincinnati/Tri-State region under the leadership of Fanchon Shur, Lead Choreographer and Shari Lauter, Composer/Music Director, along with Connie Bergstein Dow, Co-Chairs.
