Dances for a Small Stage premiered in 2002 at the Royal Pub on Granville Street in Vancouver. 

Since then, Small Stage has produced over 35 installments in Vancouver and appeared three times at Ottawa’s National Arts Centre (2006 Canada Dance Festival, 2009 BC Scene and 2015 Magnetic North Festival + Canada Dance Festival).  Our partners include Quebec City (La Petite Scene) and Adelaide, Australia (Dances for a Small Stage Australia)

The series showcases new and established dance professionals from Vancouver and across Canada on a ridiculously small stage, in an unconventional venue.

Each Small Stage show is a collection of new and innovative dance works that are 5-7 minutes in length. The series showcases a wide diversity of styles and cultures that reflect the depth of unique and talented artists including ballet, urban, flamenco, Indian Classical Dance, physical theatre, burlesque, tap and music.

Small Stage has have reached over 16,000 live audience members, many of whom had never before experienced dance.

Past projects have included small stage point 5, small secret and small stage salon series.
