2017 Festival Applications are now open!

Artist applications now being accepted for


Canada’s longest running contemporary dance festival is now accepting applications for the 2017 festival. Started in 1988, this festival has brought some of the world’s brightest and edgiest talent to the streets and stages of Vancouver for 28 years.

The Dancing on the Edge Festival Society strives to stimulate the development of high quality contemporary Canadian dance artists and choreography through the presentation of work from emerging and established local, regional, national and international dance artists and companies. The Edge has been pivotal in developing talented and passionate dance artists who push to create meaningful work – challenging, entertaining and creating new dialogues.

The Festival defines contemporary dance, not simply as defined within the canon of dance practice, but as performance dance that is happening in NOW. In any festival, one might experience contemporary/modern dance, contemporary/cultural fusion, hip-hop, physical theatre, performance art, butoh, contemporary ballet, tap/clog dancing, etc. and we encourage applicants from all contemporary genres to apply.

Deadline: September 15, 2016                                                                    Festival Dates: July 6 – 15, 2017
