It wouldn’t be summer without Canada’s longest running dance festival descending on the Firehall with an explosion of contemporary dance performances from July 2-11. This year Dancing on the Edge has put together a handy guide to help you get the most out of the outdoor site works at the festival such as Dusk Dances and Fortier Danse-Creations’ 15X AT NIGHT.
Introducing the Dance Passport, your guide to a dance adventure that takes you through to streets, parks & hidden places of Vancouver! Best of all, it’s free and if you explore enough dance frontiers, you’ll earn a free ticket! See any of the six free/by donation, site-specific shows at the festival & collect stamps along the way.
