Keep the updates and contributions coming folks!

Island Dance List, [iDance] an e-mail listserver. Use the button at any page top for more info. Join this e-mail list, receive info from organisers, send out word of your event, or discuss starting or attending one! (Don't panic, I'll reduce the "instructions" shortly, just visit the site and sign up. It's e-mail, what can go wrong?)

- Please send your dance event, activity, hall, or other information to this web site. A big thank you to folks submitting information, tell your friends, heck tell others as well.

Also send it out via iDance, the list. Yes, you. If the event is a dance, or contains dancing, of a folk/country nature, just do it. Sending it to me to send it to the list adds a delay

- Like to help make this site into  http://island-dance.ca/ or http://vislanddance.ca/  (preferences? suggestions?) Perhaps a small $ contribution to help house the site? This may be necessary by spring 2017 as it appears Shaw is removing webspace. Please get in touch

What's all this then?


An independent (enough) Folk & Country Dance web site & e-mail list for Dancers, Dance Groups, Callers, Musicians, Organisers, and the like, on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and other islands in or near Southern British Columbia. Some Lower Mainland, regional and BC information or connections will be presented for island dancers

Please see the About page for more background or rationale and to make any submissions & updates, which are most welcome
