Join us for an entertaining trolley ride event that highlights significant cultural, historical and natural features across the North Shore through music and dance performances. Based on the popular "pop-up" dance festival that began in San Diego in 2000, Trolley Dances was launched in Canada by the North Vancouver Community Arts Council in 2012.
Replica SanFrancisco-style trolleys transport guests to four secret outdoor locations, where audiences are entertained by four uniquely choreographed cultural dances and performance art chosen relative to its location.
Dance sites are only announced to ticket holders as they travel on the trolleys, adding intrigue and excitement to the event. Audiences get the opportunity to discover locations across the North Shore that they might not have been exposed to before, and are entertained by guides on the trolleys with historical anecdotes about the sites they travel to.
View the photo gallery of our inaugural Trolley Dances event, which took place Sunday, September 30, 2012. We had beautiful weather for the sold-out event. Thank-you to everyone who attended! Read some of the audience feedback.
The tour included performance sites in all three North Shore municipalities and a Metro Vancouver park, including: Waterfront Park, The Ferry Building in Ambleside, Cleveland Dam, and Shipbuilders Square.
Special thanks to Metro Vancouver for providing cultural event funding, all our event sponsors, and the Vancouver Trolley Company for providing the four trolleys that transported audience members to the dance sites.
Special thanks also to our entertaining trolley tour guides, Kelsey, Nadia, Judith and Becky for providing the historical context and significance of each site in relation to the dances performed.
