Har­bourfront hoofers

As al­ways, there’s lots of dance ac­tion go­ing down at the wa­ter­front – and all of it’s free. For the first time, the semi-fi­nals and fi­nals of the Pop, Lock & Load com­pe­ti­tion – where Canadian and in­ter­na­tional crews lay down their moves for cash – both take place dur­ing the Beats, Breaks & Cul­ture week­end

(July 10-12). The Is­land Soul week­end fea­tures Charles Town Ma

roons (Au­gust 1), a drum and singing group of descen­dants of run­away slaves from 18th-cen­tury Ja­maica. And the sec­ond of two

Planet In­di­gen-US week­ends (Au­gust 21 to 23) in­cludes Hawai­ian hula group Halu I Ka Wekiu, with moves by the ac­claimed chore­og­ra­pher from the troupe Black Grace. har­bourfront­cen­tre.com.
