NO RESERVATIONS: The Scotiabank Dance Centre’s 14th-anniversary celebration, Dance Hotel, had supporters dine and 20 companies perform on four of the Davie-at-Granville facility’s floors. Running from Aché Brasil to the Wailele Wai Wai Hawaiian hula group, acts included long-established Ballet BC, Paras Terezakis’s Kinesis company and Rosario Ancer’s Flamenco Rosario. Unlike the real hotels alongside and nearby, no one was kicked out for making a noise. In fact, it was encouraged.
Yoshi Yamamoto and dancers of the Wailele Wai Wai Hawaiian hula ensemble represented one of 20 companies performing in the Scotiabank Dance Centre’s Dance Hotel celebration.
