After a surge of national pride demonstrated during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, an enthusiastic Langley business woman, Maria Martini, was inspired to keep the pride alive. Joining forces with Associate Director of Choreography for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games’ Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Marlise McCormick, and award-winning song-writers Bob Buckley and Brian Gibson, plans were set in motion to create a Canada Day Celebration like never before seen in the country.
Enthusiasts, athletes, dancers and energetic performers (16 years old and up) are invited to perform a 1000-person Flash Mob Dance to a new and unique Canadian song. Imagine, one thousand participants coming together for a choreographed dance!
So what have you done since coming to Canada? Now’s your chance to take part in a truly historical moment. Go home with an amazing experience to tell your family and friends! This could be you! Registration is now open at http://www.keepthepridealive.ca – participate in this 1,000 person mob dance!
A bilingual song, entitled “Keep the Pride Alive” and in French, “Une Fierté à Conserver,” was recorded by twenty-eight musicians. This new hit single will be performed by six of BC’s best vocalists, including Langley’s own superstar, eleven year old Cole Armour. This musical celebration will truly touch the hearts and minds of Canadians, reigniting the euphoria of national pride. This amazing song was recently recorded and is primed for dance rehearsals, starting in late June. The time has come to sign-up a thousand people to perform the flash mob dance.
With an impressive team, who were involved in the creation and production of the Olympic Ceremonies, this Canada Day Celebration is destined to make an historic imprint on the hearts and minds of Canadians. Event Producer Maria Martini says, “My greatest desire is that Canadians will rekindle the euphoric national pride we all felt during the Olympics, and keep the pride alive.”
