Get ready for a lively evening of dance and entertainment! Come spend one of our dark, dreary, Victoria December evenings lifting your spirits by enjoying a bright, exciting, diverse array of dance styles presented in engaging, outside the box fashion. From Latin to Tap Dance, Indian/Hip-Hop fusion to Contemporary with Spoken Word, this show has something for everyone. You’ll even get to be part of the musical accompaniment with an interactive rhythm making performance! Hosted by the coolest cats in town, the ever good looking Britty B and RJ Jr, you are sure to have your funny bone tickled between being graced by the beauty, style or story of each act.
Perhaps you might know some of our local performers! If so, come watch them do their thing and support the Victoria dance community as it makes its way back onto the public stage. If not, maybe you’ll become someone’s newest fan.

≫ Land Acknowledgement ≪
▪︎ We would like to gratefully acknowledge that the territory on which this event takes place is on the traditional, stolen, unceded land of the Lekwungen and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples. We acknowledge the rich cultural history of the many peoples and rituals that have been affected by the ongoing process of dispossession and colonialism. We hold this understanding in our interactions and engagements with this land and its people.
≫ Accessibility ≪
▪︎ Our seating is a combination of high tables, bar stools, and cocktail tables with chairs. If you require assistance with this, please make a note when purchasing tickets or contact us at events@victoriaeventcentre.ca and VEC staff will do their best to accommodate.
▪︎ There are three multi-user, gender-inclusive bathrooms with stalls. One bathroom has a larger stall with its own sink and a grab bar (more details in the ‘Bathrooms’ section).
▪︎ The Victoria Event Centre currently does not have an operational elevator, and there is one long flight of stairs at the venue entrance. The only way into the VEC is up 27 wood stairs, 11″ deep, 6″ high. There are wooden 2.5” handrails 38” up the wall on each side of the staircase (54” apart, so not graspable on both sides at once. See further details in the ‘Getting Inside’ section)
▪︎ If you would like to attend the event but require assistance with accessing the space, please contact us at events@victoriaeventcentre.ca and VEC staff will do their best to accommodate.
▪︎ Inside the Victoria Event Centre there is a gender inclusive wheelchair accessible washroom that technically fits necessary size dimensions, but is missing a bar and a handrail beside the toilet. There are two stalls in the washroom, but only one of these has been renovated to meet 5’x5′ wheelchair clearance.
