Dance Information

Granville Market is on Granville Island, a peninsula and shopping district in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The peninsula was once an industrial manufacturing area, but today it is now a major tourist destination and working neighbourhood.

The Granville Island Public Market features a farmers market, day vendors, and artists offering a variety of local Vancouver culinary offerings. There are fifty permanent retailers in the market offering local products. In addition, there are over one-hundred Day vendors in stalls throughout the market selling a variety of Artisan cottage-industry foods and unique hand-made crafts on a rotating schedule.

The deviser of this dance, Elinor Vandegrift, is a very well-known member of RSCDS Seattle. As well as being a Scottish country dance teacher of long standing in the Seattle area, Elinor is an examiner of teacher candidates and, I rather suspect, travels extensively throughout North America in that role. I would also think that Elinor is very familiar with Interstate Highway 5 which runs north to the Canadian border, where it connects with B.C. Highway 99, taking her into Vancouver and crossing Granville Island in the process.
