North Vancouver-based Lamondance (LMD) is a contemporary dance/training company established to promote and expand contemporary dance vocabulary locally, nationally, and abroad. Founded in 2008, LMD operated under North Vancouver's RNB Dance and Theatre Arts for ten years. In summer 2019, the company was incorporated as Lamondance Arts Society and received CRA charitable status. Today, LMD is a strong, contemporary dance voice in the Lower Mainland led by Artistic Director Davi Rodrigues, who brings 30+ years of professional dance experience and more than 18 years as a dance educator, choreographer and director. Under his leadership, LMD offers training and apprenticeship programs and a season of artistic programming of bold and innovative contemporary dance works. LMD has toured to represent Canada at the International Dance Seminar in Brazil and the TanzArt Festival in Germany (two important international events for contemporary dance). Importantly, alumni of LMD have joined leading dance companies in Brazil, Germany, Austria, and the US.

Before Dawn

"To the first light of day, a new era must come. 

Let it become light or clear, dark or bright with ups and downs; there is still time to love and forgive, laugh, and cry. 

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the Dawn is still dark. With the ramps of life, Even so, will you run away with us?"

- Davi Rodrigues
