After months of hard work, many dedicated students from all over Vancouver Island are converging on the Comox Valley to strut their stuff. The Annual North Island Festival of Performing Arts (NIFPA) is a non-profit society dedicated to providing a festival for students to perform before audiences and adjudicators for almost 50 years. All dance disciplines are represented from Ballet to Hip-Hop.
Potential audience members should keep in mind that these are adjudicated performances with pauses between performances. To help offset the added expenses our festival has experienced the last couple of years, we would appreciate the support.
All money received goes directly to dancers via our Awards Fund.
This local festival is a member of Performing Arts BC (Provincials). Each year, dancers are recommended to represent our local festival at Provincial. At this festival, those chosen get to perform in a similar process, on a more advanced scale. Last year’s Provincials were held virtually and recently the decision was made to host a virtual festival for 2022.
Performing Arts flourish at the festival and NIFPA feels it is important to value and further develop these talented youth and to encourage them to have personal growth and development in their discipline. The performances gather the various V.I. communities together in celebration of a common cause and allow the public to embrace the amazing talent we have on our island.
