Surfin’ Safari Dance Choreography

For Day 2, and in honour of International Dance Day, we thought we would bring a little dancing into your lives. Join Jackie Pooke, choreographer for St. Albert Children’s Theatre, as she leads you on a quick and easy-to-learn dance routine that she filmed while on the beach in beautiful Tofino, British Columbia. All you need to learn this dance routine is a willingness to have FUN.

We'd love to see your version of this dance. Take a video or a picture of your participation in today’s activity and share it with us online!
And remember, use the hashtag #40DaysofPLAY to be entered to win a prize from one of our Festival partners. 

This content was filmed in the province of British Columbia (BC) and in alignment with all BC public health measures in place at the time of filming.
