COVID-19 Special Notice


To all our ballroom family, 2020 has been a very interesting year for us all. COVID-19 has affected all our lives in different and unexpected ways and has especially affected the ballroom dance community. With current government restrictions, as well as many dance studios still closed or operating at a limited capacity, we have made the tough decision to cancel Vancouver Challenge Cup 2021 for both safety and financial reasons. This is a decision we wanted to put off for as long as possible but with the current state of the pandemic, we do not feel that we will be able to provide the community with an event we would be proud to call VCC.

Please stay safe, stay active, and never stop dancing! Let's all continue to have fun and celebrate dance in our own way and we look forward to welcoming you all back in 2022!
