Vancouver is well known for its cultural diversity, especially when we talk about dance. The Vancouver dance community is a multi faceted community, comprised of many layers and styles. The city attracts dancers of different styles to groups and dance companies but they all have one thing in common: the passion for the art of Dance. 

When we originally decided to create Lamondance and Friends - it wasn’t only to create a show to support our scholarship and bursary program or to help with the production of our other shows - it was to find a way to bring the dance community together with no competition or judgement. Simply, we wanted to present a dance filled showcase of passion, love, creativity.

At Lamondance we believe in the power of Sharing, we are all different, and because of that, we complement each other.

We are happy and excited to have our VII  edition of Lamondance and Friends on February 24th, 2019 at Capilano University “With the Unstoppable Conni Smudge”.
