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.
