Open House/Wen Wei Dance by Chris Randle

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, one of Canada's leading dance facilities; and promoting BC dance.
