 The Dance West Network, is partnering with us, along with some other remarkable organizations

 (Bulkley Valley Concert Association, Witsuwit’en Territory/Smithers,

Ts’msyen La̱xyuup/Prince Rupert 

with teaching opportunities at Hiit’aGan.iina Kuuyas Naay – Skidegate Youth Centre/Haida Nation Territory), 

to create opportunities for, along with mentoring, LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC dance artists emerging in northern BC. We've seen some amazing work from the artists and we can't wait to see their end productions.


 We're so excited to be joining in on this amazing project, with our own director, Fior Saoirse, as one of the artists.
