The Sherbrooke version of the project Make dancing a village unveiled
The stories of the Sherbrooke community and the Village Dance Project finally meet, as the video captured across the city this summer is unveiled online this Monday morning.
T he Dancing Village, which was in its fourth production, had the specific mission of making the city’s citizens and community organizations dance.
Last Thursday, at the Granada Theater, the work was presented in primeur to citizens who had reserved their place for free. An evening full of emotions where the group of Sherbrooke Hey Major, behind the music of the song specially composed for the project, delivered a performance.
Among the participating organizations, the Mind and Body Corps addiction treatment center had the pleasure of seeing its chosen sequence to complete the video. Present at the launch on Thursday, Executive Director Marie-Andrée Pelletier explains that the scope has been very positive for clients who have played the game and who have been able to “rediscover their child’s heart and work the fear of ridicule”. “It had a double impact to participate and see it afterwards. It was the pleasure and the pride to do something pleasant without consumption. To dance and romp without substances and naturally. ”
At Estrie Aide, we share that the experience has brought employees closer together. “We still talk about it. It stayed, it was not just a small event. Then, it’s always nice to meet new people. It allowed us to be more open to the community, “says store manager Sandra Morin.
The play dedicated to Sherbrooke, Our Stories Touch, whose lyrics have been written by the author Mélanie Noël, is also available on all recognized music platforms.
