In The Trails Northwest: a history of the district of Barrhead Alberta, 1867-1967, pg. there's a note about James Dance who came from England with his wife and 4 sons about 1908.http://www.ourroots.ca/e/toc.aspx?id=4188
Also see The Golden Yearshttp://www.ourroots.ca/e/toc.aspx?id=4191
where pg. 155 mentions James Dance reaching the age of 99.
I take it that Beatrice was James Dance's second wife.
You can find Beatrice in the 1881 census for England.
