Through community donations, fundraising & sponsors,

GBAAS provides the following YOUTH, ARTS & CULTURAL programs


GBAAS Touring CULTURAL DANCE SHOWS

Sharing & showcasing performing arts & culture throughout BC

Each year, GBAAS partners with performing arts groups throughout BC to produce high-energy stage shows.  These unique partnerships showcase the wonderful local talent and culture within many BC communities.

 

These partnerships give dancers the opportunity to promote their art, collaborate with other BC artists, learn new skills and perform onstage in high-level stage productions. 

 

These partnerships and productions would not be possible without the support of GBAAS fundraising.

 

As non-profit events, ticket proceeds from these shows help fund other GBAAS programs including "The Esteem Team" and "Youth Scholarships".
