Thank you to all of our wonderful supporters, sponsors, performers, and volunteers who made this evening possible. Not only did we celebrate our 25 spectacular years, but we raised funds that will go directly toward helping dancers in the future. We look forward to supporting them for years to come!
On December 1st, 2011 at the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre, CBC’s Stephen Quinn was our host for Choreographing Change, an inspiring evening of entertainment celebrating the Dancer Transition Resource Centre’s 25 extraordinary years of transforming dancers' lives and facilitating their transitions into, within, and from professional performing careers.
Throughout the evening we featured breathtaking performances by a spectacular array of BC's most preeminent artists including dancers from the brilliantly bold Ballet BC, Noam Gagnon’s dynamic Compagnie Vision Selective, the traditional Gitksan dance collective Dancers of Damelahamid, the urban Project Soul, and the internationally renowned Goh Ballet; as well as Bharatanatym dancers from Mandala Arts and Culture, tap dancing's rapidly rising star Danny Nielsen, and dancers from So You Think You Can Dance Canada. We are thrilled that these incredibly talented artists have donated their time and talent to be a part of this scintillating evening in support of the Dancer Transition Resource Centre.
In addition, five alumni took the stage in order to share their triumphant stories of transition into rewarding second careers. Their stories represented over 10,000 dancers who have been supported by the DTRC throughout its 25 years.
