This has been an interesting year for all of us in the way our lives have collectively been disrupted. One of the biggest challenges for local communities and culture has been the severe impact on arts and entertainment through the pandemic. This has hit our local organizations, venues and industry hard, but also has changed how we are able to spend some of our evenings and free time, evenings. A lot of us haven’t had a lot of entertainment besides the main streaming services we all are accustomed to.
But local community content in arts and culture is so important for a community and supporting more than the tech platforms we’ve become so used to. Over the coming months it will be more important than ever to support local arts organizations especially through the rest of the pandemic, and especially as live in person events come back into our lives. But in the meantime, there are still fun ways to support these organizations

“Dancers from around the world relocate to Vancouver to join the Goh Ballet, reflecting our entire country’s diversity. This global cultural exchange is complemented by a host of internationally renowned rehearsal masters and choreographers, who impart knowledge with generosity and enthusiasm.
Through its extensive repertoire of classical and contemporary ballet, jazz, character and Chinese dance, the Goh Ballet training program ranges from youngsters discovering dance through the Youth Company’s educational outreach program, up to the seasoned dance aficionados attending performances and international festivals.
With a combination of talent, international exposure, training and well-rounded programming, the Goh Ballet has successfully garnered recognition by producing prizewinners at international competitions, even earning the Youth Company the first invitation for a Canadian organization to perform at Rencontres Internationales de la Danse Festival in La Baule, France. These prize-winning dancers and other members have transitioned on to flourishing careers with world class companies.
The Goh Ballet Youth Company has firmly established Vancouver as a city that houses a first rate dance organization presenting world-class dancers and programs of distinction.”
