What is Dance Across Victoria?

DANCE ACROSS VICTORIA is a Virtual “Dance” Event that celebrates the spirit, vibrance and resilience of our amazing city!

How does this work?

Easy! We want everyone – YES EVERYONE – to submit their own personalized video interpretation of how they celebrate Victoria.

Who can participate?

EVERYONE! All ages, all levels, all cultures. Dancers, Non Dancers, figure skaters, hockey players, rugby, lacrosse, soccer players, families, businesses, you name it! Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, First Responders, Hospital Staff, Restaurant workers, Cashiers, Solos, Duos, Trios or with your quarantine bubble family. We would love to have as many as possible join us. The cost is Free for individuals and non-profits, but Businesses will be charged a very small fee to assist us in facilitating the video production and editing.

What exactly do we do?!

Good question! Think of Tik Tok and how fun those videos are to watch. We want you to videotape a celebratory “dance” and submit to our campaign. For example, If you are a figure skater film your best spiral, axel or triple lutz. Hockey player – Film your best slap shot. Basketball players – film your best Slam Dunk.

The video montage will be set to the song, “BRAND NEW DAY” so you don’t need music in your video!

Pertinent Details:

Video: Record a 15-20 second video on your mobile device in the horizontal mode.
Submission: send to gvfsvic@gmail.com with “Celebrate Victoria Video” in Subject line
Details: Be sure to include your IG handle and Tik Tok format!
Deadline: March 20, 2021
Airing: April 2021!!

Please note that although we will do our best to include every video in its entirety, some editing may be required. We also want to encourage everyone to be
mindful of the current health protocols when filming their submissions.
