Robson Square Summertime Dance Series 2006, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Robson Square Summertime Dance Series 2006
DanceSport BC (DSBC) is proud to present the Robson Square Summertime Dance Series 2006. This free community event has been held every summer since 1979. It is open to the general public, and people of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to join in the fun. Spectators and participants range from children to the elderly and ballroom enthusiasts to interested downtown passers-by.

Each week we start the night with a free dance lesson given by a local hand-picked dance instructor. Lessons will vary each week providing a fun, social atmosphere. Show-case dancers perform dressed in full competitive costumes, making the two twenty-minute show-cases the highlights of each night. Dance couples and teams have been chosen from local dance studios to perform. This is a chance to see ballroom at its best with performances which may include Standard, Latin or Social dances; such as Waltz, Cha-Cha, Tango, Jive, Swing and Salsa. During the general dancing, DJs will play a mixed selection of ballroom and social dance music for the audience to enjoy.
