Harbour Dance Centre is proud to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of its dance group Endangered Dance Co. with ” A Woman’s Worth” on June 26th at the Columbia Theatre in New Westminster, BC.The performance will showcase how female artists have used the mediums of dance, acting and film to advance the women’s platform in modern society. Partial proceeds will be donated to Beauty Night Society, which provides outreach services to sex trade workers.
The Beauty Night Society was chosen as a partial beneficiary of the shows proceeds as its core value matches with that of Endangered Dance Co – to empower women. Beauty Night Society builds self esteem and changes lives of women and youth living in poverty through 3 streams of programming: wellness, life skills development and makeovers. They believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. That regardless of socio-economic status, no one deserves to be invisible and isolated from community.
Over the past 5 years, Endangered Dance Co. has provided a safe haven for female artists to find inspiration, build self-confidence, and challenge gender stereotypes. They perform at charity and commercial events throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland, acting as ambassadors for the arts.
Alumni of the group often remark how the lessons they learned in the dance studio have helped them grow into more poised, confident young women as they graduate university and go out into the world.
“Being in this group made me understand that I am worth something and that I am important, and that the people around me are just as important,” says one Endangered dancer. “I’m very grateful for the way that dance has shaped me to be a better person.”
