2020 Coastal Dance Festival

Family Shows


Dancers of Damelahamid, in partnership with the Anvil Centre, will host 13th annual Coastal Dance Festival, an annual celebration of Indigenous stories, song and dance from Canada and abroad.

School Group Performances introduce K-12 students to the rich artistic practices, both customary and contemporary, of Indigenous dance, performance, and storytelling. This year as part of the school group performances, the festival will present Ewk Hyaha Hozdii from Moricetwon BC, Tuakana and Teina Leadership Academy from New Zealand, and the Dancers of Damelahamid.

The festival takes place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Qayqayt people. Dancers of Damelahamid and Anvil Centre proudly acknowledge their traditional hosts.
