Reviewer Nancie Ottem

Lamondance presented an ambitious program on opening night with MARBLED. Innovative choreography, crisp and clean sets, lighting that was sometimes starkly lit or filtered with smoky overlays to enhance a message, MARBLED offered 7 pieces over the course of a 2 hour program that was thoroughly entertaining.

Reviewer Nancie Ottem

Ballet BC, fresh from a very successful European Tour, commanded the stage at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre for the final offering of the 2017/18 season. Program 3 showcases three pieces that strongly complement each other while giving the dancers a platform to display their talent. Full review

This inspiring work from the award-winnning Dorrance Dance tap company graced Vancouver audiences with two nights of ground-breaking tap choreography. The triple bill show took the audience from old-school tap through to the here and now through expert contrast and combination with other dance forms, music, and athleticism. Full review

Reviewer Erin Jane

The Riverdance Irish dance troupe, musicians, singers, and featured International soloists really need no review as they celebrate 20 years of world-class entertainment. Navigating through a packed lobby filled with young and old dancers and enthusiasts before the show, one young girl and her mother caught my eye. Both wore a sweatshirt identifying them as dancers and both were so excited to see the show. At intermission, they caught my eye again as the young girl went dancing up the aisle, compelled by the inspiring talent on stage. Full review
