Did you know that Vancouver is bursting with incredible dance performances and festivals at all times of the year? Working in the Arts, I am lucky enough to see firsthand the volume of announcements and press releases that come through the office about upcoming shows around the city. These events are not just for the adult set – there are tons of kid-friendly shows to bring your children to that you’ll enjoy way more than another Pixar/Disney film (it’s totally okay to like those too). We have such a rich arts scene in Vancouver that there is no end to the opportunities to expose your child to the wide array of culture and history that is represented in different forms of fine and performing arts. Here is a small sampling of some of the upcoming dance performances I’d like to take my two little ones to.
