Lower Vancouver Island
Who We Are
Lower Vancouver Island is Region 1 of the British Columbia Square & Round Dance Federation (BCSRDF). We are comprised of associations, clubs, callers, cuers, and dancers on the southern end of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
Our Region encompasses the City of Victoria and surrounding municipalities, extends west to the District of Sooke, north to the Town of Sidney, and further north to the City of Duncan, and also includes the adjacent southern Gulf Islands. Our northerly boundary on the east side of Vancouver Island is the Chemainus River.
The Lower Vancouver Island Western Square & Round Dance Association (LVIWSRDA) is our dancers’ organization. The Victoria & District Caller Teachers Association (VDCTA) is the organization for our callers and cuers. The Cross Trail News is our official publication.
