COVID-19 Updates

Latest Update: April 3, 2020

Scotiabank Dance Centre will remain closed until June 1, 2020. All Dance Centre performances and events are cancelled or postponed until the end of June.

Artists, renters and patrons please head here for more detailed information.

As the COVID-19 situation escalates and emergency measures are put in place by local, provincial and federal authorities, The Dance Centre’s Board of Directors has reassessed our current position and determined that our building Scotiabank Dance Centre will remain closed until June 1. This measure is in compliance with the recommendations of public health authorities.

We do this with a heavy heart as our job is to bring people together to share the love of dance. These are trying times for all. No one can predict how long this situation will last, but we have to believe in the power of each one of us to do what is right for the community to help ‘flatten the curve’ of the virus – social distancing (and handwashing) is top of the list.

We are also postponing all Dance Centre presentations and events through to the end of June, with the aim of rescheduling them later this season or next year. If you are a subscriber or a ticket-buyer for our shows, we will be in contact with you next week regarding your tickets. We will offer refunds to all who would like them, but if you have the means, we hope you will consider donating your tickets to The Dance Centre; or indeed, making a donation to offset the loss of income and to help us weather this storm.

Our staff continue to work remotely from home and are available to answer your emails Monday-Friday 9.30am to 4.30pm. Please stay in touch: follow us on social media for further information and updates. We will get through this and come together once again to celebrate the art form we love!

Thank you for your support, cooperation and understanding.

Stay safe,
Mirna Zagar
Executive Director, The Dance Centre
