On a warm summer night out downtown, amidst blaming sirens, buskers’ beats, and the chatter of crowds on Robson, you will hear music in the distance. It will emanate from the domes that cover Robson Square and curious, you will follow your ears to the source. Aromas of hot dog carts and tantalizing food trucks will distract your nose but you’ll continue on. You’ll stop at the top of the Vancouver Art Gallery steps only to remember that it’s that time of year again — free ballroom dancing on the rink at Robson Square!
Since 1991, residents and visitors have been invited to dance on Friday night at Robson Square. From June 29th to August 31st, 2012 you can join in the fun one more, starting a free lesson at 8:00pm. Dances will then run from 9:00pm until 10:00pm and all skills levels and ages are welcome to tango, waltz, cha cha, and more.
You can follow Robson Square Dance on Facebook and Twitter for more information throughout the summer, and track the tag #R2Dance on Twitter. Bag check, washrooms, and parking are all available.
