"A ticket to Season Finale is like a global passport to what the world of dance is offering. The insight of the work that is being done on the international stage is rare even for most professional companies, and yet it is being brought to Vancouver and presented by our company. The calibre of the performance is applauded by dance artists from around theworld."For the past 28 years, The Arts Umbrella Dance company has been developing intelligent and motivated dancestudents into strong and in-demand dance artists. The dancers train six days a week as they take part in over 50 hours of classes a week. Arts Umbrella graduates have been hired by critically lauded and cutting-edge contemporary companies both here at home, like Ballet BC, and around the world with, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet (New York City), Noord Nederlands Dans, (Netherlands) and Dresden Semperoper Ballet. (Germany)2016 Choreographers:Crystal PiteSharon EyalMarie ChouinardAszure BartonJames KudelkaTom WeinbergerMauro AstolfiGioconda BarbutoCayetano Sotoand more...
