This summer, come out and celebrate all the ways dance connects us — to our city, our land and ourselves — with Small Stage’s Wednesday Summer Dance Series!
Each Wednesday afternoon in July, we’ll bring to life the magic of the four elements, Earth, Air, Fire and Water, through intimate outdoor dance pieces to take place right in amongst the people, against the electric backdrop of downtown. Featuring a different element each week, these specially choreographed shows will be performed by all local dancers, in styles that mix the classical arts with modern, urban twists.
Performances will take place at the Ice Rink at Robson Square starting at noon on July 4, 11, 18 & 25 and run for approximately 45 minutes.
Come along with us on a work-day escape into the ethereal beauty!
Each week will feature works by Ashley Sweett/ Sweett Movesves and Natasha Gorrie / Official Diamonds in the Rough Crew, with the addition of the following artists:
Hardeep Singh Sahota (Bhangra)
Susan Nase/ Shot of Scotch Vancouver (Highland)
Hannah Henney (Tap)
