  7. The Vancouver International Dance Festival kick’s off this weekend (March 2 - 23)! World class dance performances will be hitting the stage - I suggest that you apply for a membership with the Roundhouse Arts Centre (Yaletown), as members get in free to many of the festival events. There are plenty of free shows in general as well.

    If you are looking for a romantic activity to do with a date, I suggest that you check out a performance - Watching professional dancers swing elegantly through the air is pretty sexy!
