BC Dance Directory

BC Dance Directory

Dance in British Columbia defies expectations and categories. In spite of a challenging funding climate and its geographical isolation from the rest of the country, dozens of professional companies and many more artists, community groups and organizations are creating innovative dance, and exploring fusions of techniques, cultural traditions and artistic disciplines, while hundreds of schools train superb performers.

The BC Dance Directory was first published by The Dance Centre in 1997 to provide an overview of these activities, to assist those who work or have an interest in British Columbia’s dance scene, and in 2015 moved online.
