The Dancers of Damelahamid is proud to present the 13th annual Coastal Dance Festival.

The 2020 edition of the festival celebrates the future of Indigenous culture and emergence of intergenerational leadership. Highlights this year include New Zealand’s Tuakana and Teina Leadership Academy Group (TNT), a company of young artists aged 5 to 18 making their Vancouver debut, and the musician duo Tooma Laisa and Leanna Wilson, drum dancers and throat singers of traditional Inuit songs.

The program also features the return of several festival favourites, including the Squamish-based dance company Spakwus Slolem and the Haida company Rainbow Creek Dancers, featuring renowned artists Robert Davidson and Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson.
