Dance

The city's dance scene is as eclectic as its cultural makeup, and ranges from traditional Japanese and Chinese dance to classical ballet and edgy contemporary.

There are over 30 professional dance companies and many more independent choreographers in the Vancouver area. The hub of the scene is downtown's Scotiabank Dance Centre, with a complete line up of performances, classes and workshops throughout the year, including everything from Brazilian capoeira and Spanish flamenco to Indian classical dancing.  

For classical enthusiasts, Ballet British Columbia mixes fixtures of the canon with newer works by Canadian and international artists.  Most performances are held at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, downtown's 2,700-seat, ultramodern concert hall. 

Dance is a major part of several annual festivals.  Each winter, the city hosts PuSh, an international performing arts event showcasing genre-bending and often visionary contemporary works of dance and other disciplines.  Spring brings the Vancouver International Dance Festival, a month-long celebration of contemporary dance.  And summer is highlighted by Dancing on the Edge, presenting progressive contemporary pieces by local artists in an edgy setting in East Vancouver.

Finally, unique to Vancouver, the annual Talking Stick Festival showcases traditional and contemporary aboriginal dancing, storytelling and other performances by the region's first nations peoples.
