Dance Project – Global Water Dances

For the second year, children and adults of Starling Dance Theatre took part in the Global Water Dances: Dancing for Clean Water Everywhere!  This amazing world-wide community dance event connected over 170 participating sites to raise awareness of issues around drinking water access globally and local water issues.
