One of the greatest things about living in a multicultural city like Vancouver is the chance to experience everything those different cultures bring to the city.
I have so many images of dancers that I decided to just select the wide variety of Chinese dances I have seen.
These were mostly taken down on Granville Island during a variety of free Performance Works shows. The costumes are amazing!
Chinese New Year is also a great place to see a variety Chinese dances. This sword dance is based on martial arts.
