The Response

Artistic Director: Amber Funk Barton


Dedicated to pushing the physical and emotional boundaries of dance, the response (aka The Response Dance Society) is a Vancouver-based contemporary dance company founded in 2008 by Amber Funk Barton, an emerging choreographer with a reputation for athletic hybrid movement.

Amber has created choreography for dancers in our Half-Day Program, and has selected a lucky few to experience what it is like to apprentice with her company. The experience of working in a professional environment has proven to be unparalleled for our students.
