Robson Square 2015
back on Friday June 26 2015!!!
Thank you to all the people who volunteered their time this summer at the Robson Square Summer Dance Series. This includes all the professionals, who taught free beginner lessons, the performance groups, who entertained us with many different dance styles, the MCs and DJs, who kept us on track and in tune, the Robson Committee, who did the planning and admin work, our sponsor, Avalon Dance Shop, and our Day-Of volunteers, who make Robson Square happen each Friday night. Thank you.
Here are some highlight photos from the summer

Like always, this is a great outdoor event that runs rain or shine as we are well protected by the beautiful domes. Be sure to bring your friend that says “I’ve been meaning to take a ballroom class” or the relative that really needs a few more pointers on how to dance with a few less fingers pointed. The environment is great for all ages and abilities. Bag-check, washrooms and parking are available.
Since 1991, DanceSport BC has put on a social ballroom dance event every Friday during the summer months. With more than 500 attendees a night, people of all ages gather for a fun-fill night of dancing. Whether you are a dance professional or have two left feet; on your 100th date or your first; with a group of old friends or getting to know a new city, these dances are for you.
