Dance House presents exceptional international caliber dance of scale to engage, inform and challenge, and to offer transformative cultural experiences for Vancouver audiences.
Diversity. Through the board, sponsors, and productions, we support and encourage a culturally diverse environment that reflects the global dance community.
Quality. We consistently deliver a high quality experience for patrons, including but not limited to ticket sales, venue experience, staged artistic offerings and auxiliary engagement opportunities. We build the public’s trust that we will deliver quality and engaging work. We comply with high management standards to ensure long-term financial sustainability. We stand behind the artistic integrity of the high calibre work that we present. We ensure that our donors and supporters are appropriately recognized. We take pride in our contribution to Vancouver’s vibrant cultural landscape.
Audience Experience. Through the artistic works we present, audiences have the opportunity to experience and respond in a physical, emotional, or intellectual way. We hope the entire theatre experience is positive for the audience – the physical venue. The experience of sharing the audience “group experienced” is a positive and open opportunity to share a common experience. Dance House strives to offer challenging and engaging international dance to our audiences.
Education. We believe in fostering a deeper understanding of dance through dialogue and the sharing of the experience and knowledge.
Accessibility. We strive to provide a range of opportunities for the community to engage with artists and the creative offerings from diverse cultures, genres, and perspectives.
