As part of Alberta Culture Days 2017, Mile Zero Dance will be celebrating the wealth of talent and creativity that exists within our community with two free events including Dance Extravaganza on September 29 and Terrance Houle’s Ghost Days on September 30.
Mile Zero Dance is bringing a Dance Extravaganza to Edmonton for Alberta Culture Days. Conceived as a “dance sampler”, this free event brings many styles of dance to the stage that can be found in Edmonton but rarely all in one place.
Our informal studio space at 10816 – 95th Street provides a warm and intimate introduction to dance as varied as SANGEA’s African stylings to CRIPSIE’s mixed-ability dance team to contemporary and theatrical styles of dance. The ever-adorable Jake Tkacyzk will MC the two mixed shows, starting at 6:30 pm and 8:00 pm.
Limited seating, but FREE!

SEPTEMBER 30, 8PM
An experimental art adventure with film/video, performance, photo and music to conjure spirits and ghosts as audience and collaborators. Terrance Houle will attempt to evoke the spirits and ghosts of colonial and non-colonial history, that exist in the light of night as in the darkness of the day.
GHOST DAYS is a project based in many disciplines such as photo, video/film, performance, music and drawing/painting with a major emphasis on collaboration. The project is an experiment in Conjuring and medium-ship mixed with art and collaboration with the living but also the spirit of the dead.
