    Hi Andrea,
    Here is a blurb from me.
    I could not figure out how to do the google form.

    Dancing on the Edge has been a stable, influential, accessible and inspiring part of the dance landscape in Vancouver since I returned to BC in 1992. Having shown my work multiple times in the festival and attending as many shows as possible each year – last year I saw 12 shows – I have become reliant on this resilient and adventurous festival to give me my needed summer fix of contemporary dance. From the early days emerging and senior artists have all been programmed in the festival making it a great launching place for emerging artists and also an opportunity for established artists. One of my favorite memories is having the group photo shoot for the festival poster sometime in the 90’s with about a dozen of Vancouver’s choreographers and dancers of many generations all standing on the “edge”.
