Ambassador Hrnčíř is coming to the Centre to show his support of our new travel program, “Imperial Cities,” developed in partnership with CAA Member Choice Vacations. This new travel program takes members on an 11-day cultural experience of Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. The program also serves as a fundraiser for the Centre with a percentage of each booking being donated back to support arts education.

As Prague is the Ambassador’s homeland, he wanted to stop by the Centre during his visit to Charlottetown to meet the travellers and show his support for the work of the Centre in educating communities on the role of the arts in creating cross-cultural understanding.

You’re invited to join us at the meet and greet on:

A cherished spring tradition, participants in the Dance Umbrella programs showcase the amazing results of a whole year’s worth of training in a special end of year performance. Dance Umbrella celebrates dance as an enriching art form for beginner and emerging Island dance and musical theatre talent. This year’s matinee includes junior and elementary classes, while the evening features the intermediate and senior students, with a new special performance by the Afro-Jazz students.

The show is titled “Dance It Out!” and reflects how so many times we can be stuck for words, but can find comfort dancing through our emotions and challenges.
