The Burnaby Festival of Dance has been held annually since 1980. The Festival is sponsored by the Burnaby School District and was created to provide a non-competitive forum for students from K-12 to perform and share their dances with peers, parents and friends. The festival has grown to showcase approximately 45 dances over 3 nights of performances held at Burnaby Mountain Secondary. Approximately 1000 students participate each year. There are now several teachers teaching in the district who remember participating in the Festival of Dance when they were students.
We welcome newcomers and hope that teachers will feel welcome and supported to bring their students to the festival. If you are interested, but would appreciate some support getting started or perhaps are interested in volunteering, please contact Bryn Williams at: firstname.lastname@example.org
