The Lost Art of Social Dancing
July 25th, 2011

I have to say that I am a tad disappointed to see that more competitors don’t come out to Robson Square. I know that everyone is super-busy and that there are a million other things to do, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say… I suspect (and you can all comment and correct me if I’m wrong) that many competitors don’t come, because they are not comfortable dancing outside their comfort zones!


The Return of Robson Square
July 21st, 2011

Ever since I first started ballroom dancing, I remember looking forward to Robson Square every Friday night during the summer months. I was so sad to hear that it was not happening during the renovations for the Olympics…but after a 3 year hiatus, I am thrilled that it’s finally back!


The Return of Robson Square – Abridged Version

robson-square2What I always looked forward to in the summertime for years was Robson Square. It was always the highlight of the summer for us ballroom dancers in Vancouver. For those of you who don’t know, DSBC (DanceSport BC) used to run a Summertime Dance Series every Friday evening during the months of July and August. There would be a full night of general dancing, starting off with a free lesson and 2 sets of demos per night. I remember back when there was even a live band! What a fantastic way to spend your Friday evenings celebrating the love of dance amongst friends!
