The Vancouver Challenge Cup is back for 2017! We're offering a full slate of Pro-Am and Amateur competitions as well as plenty of fun events and social dancing. Kick off 2017 in style and join the experience which is the VCC. The most fun and social ballroom event in Vancouver.
This event is much more than a competition. It's a celebration of dance, open to everyone. We have an unforgettable weekend planned. In addition to the highlight competition events in the evenings, we will also have a Mixer, some shows, a Jack & Jill competition and lots of General Dancing!
So what does this all mean?
A 'mixer' is a group dance where everyone is constantly changing partners. Our very own, charismatic Michel Guimond will be leading the mixer. The choreography is very simple that even a beginner will have no problem catching on. Get on the dance floor and give it a whirl!
Back for VCC 2017 is our professional showcase! Happening on Saturday night, this will feature performances by Professional Canadian Latin Champions, BC Standard, Latin, and 10 Dance Champions, as well as dancers originally from Germany, Ukraine, Russia!
Jack & Jill Competitions
Jack & Jill competitions are not so familiar in the world of ballroom dancing, but are in fact very popular in the world of swing! Leads and follows get paired randomly, and there are no costumes and no choreography required. Competitors and non-competitors are all welcome to join. It's always a very entertaining event, as it's very spontaneous and a lot of FUN!
This is a chance for everyone to get off their seats and take to the floor! We will be playing fun social music throughout the general dancing sessions. So grab your friends, or make new ones, and dance the night away!
As we are putting on not only a competition but also a party, we will have light refreshments and alcoholic drinks available for purchase from the bar. This year we've brought on a master mixologist to expand our menu and our senses with a fresh lineup of craft cocktails. Enjoy the events, munch on some snacks and share some drinks with friends.
