Leading edge. Inspiring. Spectacular!
Dance Victoria brings the World’s Best Dance to Victoria with a leading edge, inspiring and spectacular 18/19 Season. Season subscriptions and single tickets are on sale now.

With Dance Victoria’s Dance at the Royal Series, you will experience the sexy athleticism of Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal’s Dance Me, a multi faceted dance homage to poet/musician Leonard Cohen reflecting on five stages in the late singer-songwriter’s life; the elegance and versatility of Ballet West in a classic and contemporary program by celebrated American choreographers Val Caniparoli, George Balanchine and Nicolo Fonte; the bold innovation of internationally acclaimed Ballet BC in a mixed program by leading dance makers; and the cutting-edge ingenuity of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago featuring works by Alejandro Cerrudo and Victoria’s own Crystal Pite.

Plus there’s a choice of additional presentations: Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s Nutcracker, accompanied by the Victoria Symphony, is a uniquely Canadian perspective on the classic story, while MAN is a tender movement dialogue between Norwegian choreographer Sølvi Edvardsen and the remarkable dancer Sudesh Adhana.

Adult single tickets for all Dance Victoria shows are on sale now. There are several value ticket options including: Pay Your Age (12-29 yrs.), Night Moves (30-45 yrs.) and 50 seats for every performance at the unbelievable price of only $29 (MAN and Nutcracker excluded).
