Dance Victoria

RIVETING. RELEVANT. EXCEPTIONAL.

Dance Victoria will turn 21 this year, and as ever, these presenters plan to bring an abundance of riveting, relevant dance performances to our capital city!

They’ve secured the only Canadian date this season for modern dance legends Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and in their Dance at the Royal series, they’ll host many more world-class companies, including Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, ODC/ Dance, Company Wayne McGregor, and Ballet Hispánico. Special presentations will include Alberta Ballet’s classic The Nutcracker and Dancers of Damelahamid’s contemporary indigenous work, Flicker.

Movers and shakers can partake in Dance Days, a festival offering over 70 free dance classes all over town during the final two weeks of January. Participants can try a new dance style or take in Rough Cuts at Dance Victoria Studios, a rare opportunity to see the West Coast’s most innovative dance artists up close and personal.

Dance Victoria is also the home of the Chrystal Dance Prize, Canada’s richest dance prize for international collaboration. Each year, the award of up to $50,000 supports new works by independent dance artists living in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, or the Yukon who wish to work with a dance artist(s) (dancer, choreographer or interpreter) outside Canada.
