Here's a few Maple Leaf Dance Hall highlights:

Asa Branco is an infectious blend of Horns and percussion playing Brazilian street band music.

Jacky Essombe & Friends: Yoro Noukoussi & Kurai Mubaiwa

Jacky Essombe is a “cultural liaison” between the African and the Western worlds. They share the joy, excitement and sense of togetherness found in African villages.

Professor Banjo: Allemande Right, Do Sa Do, and walk your partner home again.  Don't miss out on this big ol' barn dance fun times!

RPD Bhangra Academy promises to keep the next generation linked with their beautiful folk dances and to keep the ethnic Punjabi culture and heritage alive.

The Sm:)e Band is an all girl-band featuring performers ages 15 - 17 years old.  Their hope is to motivate other young people to believe in themselves and make the world a better place.

The Vancouver Puppet Theatre is original, fun and captivating entertainment for your children, puppets beyond “Sesame Street” and “The Muppet Show”.

The Wild Moccasin Dancers are a dynamic troupe that displays the beauty and vibrancy of pow wow culture through dance. From schools to festivals The Wild Moccasins have performed and taught at many events.
