Welcome to Dance Victoria’s Community Dance Archives
This is a project created in honour of Dance Victoria’s 25th anniversary to celebrate our city’s fabulous dance history. We invite you to take a little time to explore the articles, podcasts, videos, photographs and memories collected here now, and remember that more will be added over time – there’s so much to cover, it may take a while to cover the breadth and depth of dance in our community!
These archives are intended to be interactive. CLICK HERE for an overview of a submission to give you an idea of your options. You are invited to upload your own photos, videos and scans of programs, posters or other memorabilia to share your favourite dance moments in Victoria, BC Canada!
Thank you for visiting the Community Dance Archives! Dance Victoria Society has temporarily paused submissions from the public while we update our community guidelines. In the meantime, we invite you to explore the articles, podcasts, videos, photographs and memories collected here so far – and to visit the South Vancouver Island Dance Archives (SVIDA) in-person at 111-2750 Quadra St by emailing [email protected] to setup a time.
