Dancing on the Edge Festival

The 32nd annual Dancing on the Edge Festival moves forward in a different form!

An eagerly anticipated highlight of the Lower Mainland’s dance season each July is Canada’s longest running contemporary dance festival, Dancing on the Edge. For the 2020 festival, we will be presenting a reimagined EDGE. This year, during this global pandemic, things will be different, working around the limitations on public gatherings, so the EDGE has adjusted its look and vision in response.

In celebration of our 32nd Annual DOTE, our offerings will be some specially curated digital programming, a few performances in the Firehall Arts Centre Courtyard with very limited audiences, premieres of dance films, as well as online classes for anyone who wants to dance!  Hope everyone will participate and enjoy this ‘lite’ version of the festival, which has run uninterrupted for thirty-one years.  The arts are so valued and enriching, especially at challenging times like this, so we look forward to continuing to reach and engage our loyal patrons with our reimagined EDGE!
