May Day 2022 Registration - Call for participants!

May Day is Saturday May 28 2022, in Queens Park Stadium. No celebration of May Day would be complete without the traditional May Pole and Folk Dances and we would love to have you join us as a dancer to perform one of these heritage dances.

All participants must be residents of New Westminster, and currently in grades 2 through 6. We will be abiding by all provincial and municipal Public Health Orders for dance lessons as well as the participation in May Day.

Did you miss your chance to dance in '20 and '21?

This year, we're including grade 6 children to be part of the magic! No child should be left out of the opportunity to participate. We hope you'll consider signing up now for these free dance lessons and enjoy learning and performing at May Day.

What dances will be learned?

Children in grades 2 and 3 will be learning traditional folk dance(s).

Children in grades 4 through 6 will be learning the May Pole dances.

No previous dance experience necessary.

Do the lessons cost anything?

We are offering FREE dance lessons to children who would like to dance the May Day dances this coming May Day (May 28, 2022).
