Welcome to The Dance Centre’s 2020-2021 season! This season will feature a diverse range of dance from different genres, in a program of digital and small-scale live events adapted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Choreographer’s Circle, a group of dance lovers and donors who have collectively raised $3.5 million to support The Dance Centre over the last decade. We sat down Canadian dance icon and founding member Jean Orr, to find out more.
This year has seen unprecedented turmoil around the world: our Executive Director Mirna Zagar talks about the impact of the pandemic on dance, how The Dance Centre has responded, and why she’s still hopeful.
A monthly series where we shine the spotlight on one of our members. July features Vancouver Samba School’s Yulia Terekh
