ABOUT DANCE IN TRANSIT

Patricia Hardin was interviewed about Dance in Transit by Gloria Macarenko for CBC’s Our Vancouver.  Watch to hear how it started and what it’s all about!

Why Dance in Transit?

The Dance in Transit concept and title belongs to Sam’s Dance. It was conceived out of a desire to build community, expand social networks, and add some face-to-face contact into our daily lives. It is a way to “bring it to the streets.”

Traditionally, dance schools experience a slower period during the warmer months when people want to be outdoors. We thought, why not combine the beautiful outdoors with some exhilarating dance experiences?

Dance in Transit provides a continuous supply of dancing during the warm months to the existing dance community—at no cost—and offers people who are not already dancers to watch it, try it, and see if they love it, too.

CLASSES ARE THE GOAL

dsc08736

Here’s the thing about dance classes.

If you think you dance too well to need them, you’re probably wrong.

Dance classes smooth out your basics, improve your transitions, point out your problem areas so you can improve them, keep you humble, & give you the opportunity to bring new people into your dance world.

Yes, you take dance classes to improve your dance ability.  That’s the means to an end.

You also take them to spend time with friends, meet new people, & have fun doing something you love with other people who love it, too.  That’s an end in itself.

You take dance classes for social reasons as well as for the activity.  You take them to support dance schools and dance teachers and other lovers of dance.  You take them to become a part of the dance community.

Join us.  We guarantee you’ll have fun!

Robson Square Summer 2016

We took a chance and experimented with two Saturday nights at the wonderful Robson Square. We wanted to see if we could bring people from different groups together and have them enjoy dancing.  We had younger & older, locals & tourists, & many ethnicities represented.  It worked.  They danced!  We had fun.  There will be more.
