Crimson Coast Dance Society

Welcome to the Crimson Coast! Crimson Coast Dance was established in 1998 under the vision of Artistic Director Holly Bright. We are the only company presenting professional contemporary dance north of Victoria on beautiful Vancouver Island. We are committed to raising the profile of dance and developing dance audiences outside the BC Lower Mainland by creating performance and teaching opportunities for professional dance artists in the growing cultural community in Nanaimo.

Our season runs from October to September. We produce our mainstage series called Dance on the Crimson Coast and the InFrinGinG Dance Festival. We are entering our 18th Season of presenting dance in Nanaimo, BC. We desire to showcase the best in Canadian contemporary dance artistry to dance lovers on Vancouver Island. We are dedicated to creating dance education opportunities for everyone. We do this through a variety workshops and community engagement activities geared to all ages and skill levels, as well as through our year-long Body Talk Youth Outreach program which mentors youth to produce a week-long Spring Break Dance workshop and finale performance.

Crimson Coast Dance offers many opportunities for individuals and businesses to help build the contemporary dance movement on Vancouver Island. You can help by volunteering, donating funds, services and materials, becoming a member, or sponsoring one of our dance programs.
