Performances | studio showings | events | dialogues | networking + more


The 11th edition of Dance In Vancouver takes place November 22-26, 2017. This biennial event began in 1997 and has established itself as the leading opportunity for presenters from across North America and around the world to view one of the most vibrant dance scenes in Canada - the eclectic contemporary dance of Canada's West Coast.

Dance In Vancouver offers a carefully structured and intensive program with:
• mainstage performances and studio presentations;
• moderated discussions where presenters and artists can network and exchange information;
• specially curated interactive events.

This is a forum in which to explore the potential for future collaboration, to learn about an upcoming new generation of choreographers, and to see established artists who work here. Dance In Vancouver seeks to engage in dialogue around residencies, creativity and community engagement.

What presenters said about DIV:
"We were there to experience the Vancouver dance scene and were immersed which was wonderful."
"Enjoyed connecting with colleagues and meeting new people."
"Lots of inspiring dance, people, and conversations - and we have already had very positive feedback from our network."
"I had such a wonderful learning experience at Dance in Vancouver, not only was the dance of a very high calibre, diverse and risk-taking but the meetings, opportunities for discussion and panellists were all thought-provoking and moved our art form forward." 

Dance In Vancouver is based at Scotiabank Dance Centre, Canada's flagship dance facility, in the heart of downtown Vancouver, and this edition will also feature a number of off-site events.

This edition's curator is New Zealand-based producer Adam Hayward. We will also be welcoming the Alliance of Canadian Dance Networks, offering a great opportunity to connect with presenters from across Canada.
