Dance Victoria’s highest priority is the health and welfare of its patrons, artists, staff and volunteers. As such, Dance Victoria is announcing the cancellation of its final dance performance of the 19/20 Season, Tania Pérez-Salas Compañía de Danza from Mexico City on May 1 and May 2, 2020 at the Royal Theatre, due to COVID-19.
Any patron who has purchased tickets to these performances can request a ticket refund. However, if you have the means, please consider donating your tickets back to Dance Victoria to receive a charitable tax receipt. Your ticket donations will help offset the loss of income in these unforeseen circumstances.
To request a refund or donate your tickets, you must email the Royal Theatre and McPherson Playhouse. The Royal Theatre and the McPherson Playhouse is closed until Tuesday, April 14, 2020. The complete shutdown includes over the phone box office services. The Box Office is available for refund requests of cancelled or postponed performances by email only. They can be reached Monday to Friday from 8:30am until 4:30pm at firstname.lastname@example.org. You have 60 days from the date of the performances to take action (by July 1, 2020).
The cancellation of the Tania Pérez-Salas Compañía de Danza performances (May 2020) and Ballet BC performances (March 2020) are devastating and adversely affecting Dance Victoria’s financial position. As a non-profit, charitable organization, Dance Victoria relies on the support of the community to keep our organization viable.

Join Dance Victoria prior to the performance for a pre-show chat in the theatre lobby. Dance Victoria invites a member of the company or a dance historian/researcher to discuss the Company and/or show you’re about to see. Pre-show chats begin about 45 minutes prior to curtain and are free to all ticket holders.
