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.
