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.
