Raincoast Ruckus is Vancouver Country Dance's in-town dance weekend, held every year in late February, at Bonsor Recreation Complex in Burnaby, BC (a suburb of Vancouver, BC). Ruckus flies well-known callers to Vancouver from across North America to call contras and squares.
The weekend starts after supper on Friday and ends Sunday afternoon. Dancers can register for the whole weekend, or drop in on day-time workshops or Friday and Saturday evening dances. With advance notice, Vancouver dancers are happy to "billet" out-of-town registrants. As the weekend is based at a recreation center, the pool, showers, and other recreation facilities are available to dancers at the same hours as to the general public.
Bonsor Recreation Complex is located at 6550 Bonsor Avenue, in Burnaby, BC. (maps & directions)
