Glanmore Goes for the Gold in the Museum Dance Off – Vote on May 14

Glanmore Goes for the Gold in the Museum Dance Off

On May 14, Vote for Glanmore!

The staff and volunteers at Glanmore National Historic Site showed off their funky side in the Canadian finals of the Museum Dance Off Competition last month.

They have successfully defended their title as National Champion for the second time, winning with 49% of all online votes in the Canadian finals held on April 17.

The Museum Dance Off, hosted by the blog site When You Work At A Museum, was started in 2014 to show that “…museums aren’t dusty, dingy hallways full of creaky old nerds in orthopedic shoes and bowties. They are vibrant, lively places full of talented, creative people who love what they do.”

Forty-eight museums representing 14 different countries have entered the competition this year.

Glanmore’s entry will now head to the “Thunderdome” the International Finals of the Museum Dance Off on May 14.  Video entries from around the world can be viewed and voting will take place at the blog site www.whenyouworkatamuseum.com. Voting will open at 8 am on May 14 and close at 7:59 am on May 15.
