The Dance Centre has just announced its full program of performances and events for the 2021-2022 season.
“This is a very special season for us," says executive director Mirna Zagar on the centre's website, "not just because we hope to see our audiences in person, but also because we celebrate the 20th anniversary of our home for dance, Scotiabank Dance Centre, as we focus on the future.
“What began as a dream so long ago is now a vibrant arts hub," Zagar adds. "It has had such a tremendous impact on our city, on B.C, and on Canadian dance. We are looking forward so much to sharing dance with our audiences, in our beautiful building, once again.”
Highlights of the season include the Global Dance Connections series, which feature performances by MAYDAY (February 4 to 6, 2022), Dumb Instrument Dance (May 12 to 14, 2022), Radical System Art (May 26 to 28, 2022), and Maria Nurmela & Ville Oinonen (June 24 to 25, 2022); and the Discover Dance! series, which features Arno Kamolika (October 28, 2021), V'ni Dansi's Louis Riel Métis Dancers (November 18, 2021), Ne.
