Vancouver English Country Dance Ball

Saturday, April 14th, 2018, Vancouver, British Columbia


Our programme features an eclectic mix of historic and contemporary dances. Your registration includes an afternoon workshop followed by an evening of elegant dancing to beautiful live music.

Our dancing master is Kalia Kliban. She has been part of the Bay Area dance community since the mid-80s, performing and teaching morris, longsword, American and English clog and English country dance. She has been a program director for BACD's fall weekend as well as their Family Dance weekend. Her clear and humorous teaching style has gotten feet tapping at camps and gatherings throughout California and beyond.

For music this year, we are thrilled to once again have The Tricky Brits: Anita Anderson (piano), Betsy Cooper (flute), Sande Gillette (violin), & Dave Bartley (mandolin, cittern, etc).

Venue: The workshop and ball will be held at the Scottish Cultural Centre, 8886 Hudson Street, Vancouver, at 73rd Avenue, between Granville Street and Oak Street, ten minutes from Vancouver International Airport and downtown Vancouver. (maps by: google, open street map)
