C-NS Musical Club Makes a SplashTwo films created by Cicero-North Syracuse High School students and advisors were among the hundreds submitted from across the globe selected to be shown at the first International Global Water Dance Online Film Festival from June 9 11, 2021. Filmed at the beautiful Oneida Lake with original music by local artist Shane Patterson, the video includes 17students from the C-NS Musical Club and Tri M Music Honor Society. Global Water Dances is a world wide initiate using art for activism! As part of the movement, the C-NS Musical Club produced two small films to bring awareness to water issues.
Why dance? As described on the Global Water Dance site, “Communities evolve and are defined by the water nearby. Dance is an embodied practice of community building and also evolves with the shifts of a community. Both water and movement can be the place for communities to learn foster new understandings and behaviors. Therefore, Global Water Dances believe s that the interpersonal connections, growth, questions and bonds we create through dance are the strongest way to unite both local and global communities around the very real issue.”
