The 32nd Annual Dancing on the Edge Festival moves in a new direction!


Festival Producer Donna Spencer recently announced “We are very disappointed that Dancing on the Edge Festival 2020 which was scheduled from July 2-11 will not be moving forward as originally planned. The festival would have included a presentation of over thirty live performances featuring international artists from India, the USA, Quebec, Alberta, Ontario and from across BC. We know our audiences and artists look forward to the festival every year so we will be offering instead some specially curated digital programming with live streamed performances, premieres of dance films, dance discussions, four outdoor live performances in the Firehall Arts Centre’s Courtyard and one dynamic theatre performance at the Firehall Arts Centre Theatre (all live performances for very limited audiences with safety precautions in place). Dancing on the Edge has run uninterrupted for thirty-one years and we did not want to stop that momentum so we are hoping everyone will enjoy this one time only (we hope) re-imagined version of the festival. We, also, wanted to ensure our community of dance artists continued to be supported during this difficult time.”
