Happy Dance Day











29 April merupakan hari 'Dance Day' as every year since 1982, World Dance Day will be celebrated all over the world by the international community of dancers and dance enthusiasts. The main purpose of Dance Day events is to attract the attention of the wider public to the art of dance. Special emphasis should be given to addressing a "new" public, people who do not follow dance events during the course of the year. This year's Dance Day is dedicated to the children. The International Dance Council CID UNESCO, together with UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, fights for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper education forms the strongest foundation for person's future. so, Penang seperti lazimnya tidak ketinggalan menyertai program sebegini yang diketuai oleh siapa lagi kalau bukan 'Madam Heritage Heboh of Penang' iaitu Janet Pillai and the gang (Prof. Tan Sooi Beng dan Aida Reza) Aku tak terlibat secara langsung dalam projek ni sebab sibuk dan waktu performance pada bulan Jun nanti aku akan bercuti untuk kembara benua Asia dan Eropah selama sebulan. Walaupun begitu, bila ada projek sebegini tak akan ketinggalan untuk membantu di mana yang patut atau lebih tepatnya 'menyibuk' je sana sini. Masa rehearsal itu hari, iaitu pada hari sabtu 28 April bertempat di SMK Convent Light Street aku sempat untuk memberi 'support'. Ramai jugak kanak-kanak baru yang terlibat di samping kanak-kanak lama yang dah biasa terlibat dalam projek 'cummunity theater' macam ni. Selain daripada itu, orang kuat yang lain termasuk Aki (Pelajar Jepun yang sedang membuat Master Degree dalam bidang muzik di USM, Diana (Pelajar final year USM), Miechele(Pelajar tahun dua USM)dan Yoke Pin (Ko-Ordinator Arts Education Penang). So, lihat beberapa foto yang sempat diambil.

Really like the feel at Light School in Penang, full of history! I was great watching the kids rehearsing "Rongeng Merdeka", meeting Janet Pillay and meeting Prof Tan again. The last time was in Chiang Mai when I presented my paper on Malaysian Musical and moderated by Prof.Tan. Wish to go again to Penang to watch the final performance.
