War of the Roses


Valentine’s Day can be a great day to celebrate all kinds of love. Like anything else, love has its light and dark moments and also means so much more than simple romantic love. The love of good friends, great music, and a fantastic alternative culture are also important parts of love that bring meaning to our lives. Join us for our annual War of the Roses event where we connect to dance up a storm in the name of all forms of love!

Descent Dress Code

While we highly encourage people to dress up, particularly for this event, Vancouver Descent boasts an exclusively nonexistent dress code. “Why?” you ask. Well, it’s simple: We want everyone who comes to our events to be comfortable. New people entering the scene, or just checking it out, may not have figured out their style. So you may be wondering what is acceptable. Jeans and a t-shirt? No problem. Full out Goth? Totally AWESOME. Punk kid? Rock god? Sk8tr girl? Great! Sweet! Wicked! Feel like going all out in some jaw dropping ensemble? You’re totally welcome to. Come how you want to but we are strongly encouraging everyone to dress up in their favourite Gothic style.
