      Dance on a historic train turntable, contemporary work at the Scotiabank Dance Centre, and salsa at Robson Square: those are just a smattering of the moving and shaking that will be going on as part of International Dance Day on Saturday (April 29). The Dance Centre is the hub for the art form in this city, so look there for Pressed Paradise putting on pop-up performances, and installations throughout the building all day, plus a big showcase by the likes of Company 605 and Vanessa Goodman that evening. Don’t miss bhangra with students from Windermere Secondary School outside the Vancouver Art Gallery from 1 to 1:30 p.m.; or Polymer Dance’s contemporary moves on the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre’s turntable from 3 to 3:30 p.m. It’s all free, folks; check out for a full schedule.
