Now the production has been signed to tour in the United States and Australia . Vesak , a dancer , designer and dance teacher as well as choreographer this . summer , taught at the Banff School of Fine Arts and two of his dance creations are to be performed at the Banff festi val tonight and Friday .

So Banff attracts top student dancers from New York , Toronto , Montreal and Win nipeg
