Sunday, October 2
The 2016 edition of Trolley Dances was all about the Days of Yore on the North Shore , featuring the following performers and locations:
Spakwus Slolem (Eagle Song Dancers), Mission Indian Reserve, North Vancouver. Members of the Squamish Nation performed songs and dances as a glimpse into their culture, at a location significant in the history of the Squamish.
Shot of Scotch performed at John Lawson Park, West Vancouver. This highland dance group shares their passion and prowess in traditional and contemporary dance true to the deep Scottish roots of this centuries' old art form. The location was named after one of West Vancouver's prominent pioneer families.
The Falling of the Pine, (choreographed by Caitlin Griffin, performed by Kyle Toy (Les Grands Ballets Canadiens), Nathan Fadear (Harbour Dance) and Damon Jang at the North Vancouver Community History Centre, North Vancouver. The performance was inspired by Lynn Valley's early logging days, celebrating the camaraderie of the hard-working men that were central to the developing area.
Welcome to Burlesque by Lamondance at the Pipe Shop, City of North Vancouver. In a performance choreographed specifically for this site and the Shipyard Social event that coincided with the final stop on the Trolley Dances tour, 9 young dancers presented a whimsical interpretation of burlesque dance.
