Festival Description

Since 1988 The Dancing on the Edge Festival Society has produced the annual ten day festival. The festival takes place during the first two weeks of July in Vancouver, British Columbia. The contemporary dance festival presents affordable public performances by local, national and international dance artists. The program includes performances, workshops, classes, and lectures. The aim of the society is to encourage the development of high quality contemporary Canadian dance artists at the festival through presentation of their work by up-and-coming and established local, regional, national and international dance artists and companies. The organizers seek to develop audiences through offering a means for understanding and appreciating contemporary dance. The festival accepts applications and proposals from emerging and established dance artists and companies with those interested in being considered for presentation needing to contact the festival by October 1st of the year prior to the next festival.
