In The Spotlight
Scotiabank Dance Centre opened in 2001 in downtown Vancouver, a purpose-built facility for a diverse dance community. Our building has seven studios with sprung floors, including a black box performance and production space, available for rent for rehearsals, classes, workshops, performances, photoshoots, filming and special events.

Established in 1986 as a resource centre for the dance profession and the public in British Columbia, The Dance Centre has grown into a multifaceted organization offering a range of activities unparalleled in Canadian dance.
Our goal is to support the development of a vibrant dance scene in BC and increase the profile of dance, by providing resources and services for the dance profession; presenting programs and events for artists and a broad public; operating Scotiabank Dance Centre, Canada's flagship dance facility; and promoting BC dance.
The Dance Centre produces the BC Dance Directory every two years, a series of booklets of dance writing, and the bimonthly publication Dance Central.
