If you are serious about dance you need to take dance classes in North Vancouver. Have you dreamed of taking the stage at a dance performance in front of a large audience? You can begin preparing for a career in professional dance with classes at our North Vancouver studio. Our pre-professional dance division offers student dancers an opportunity to learn and improve skills while still attending high school.
Training to be a professional dancer takes dedication and hard work. At the same time, you still want to go to school to complete your high school education and take part in other activities. Our half-day dance training program offers the best of both worlds. You get to go to your regular high school for classes in the morning, then spend the entire afternoon in dance classes in North Vancouver.
The program helps dancers better incorporate dance into their days without having to spend every night at a dance studio. The program is offered through our Perform Art Studios and we are proud to be the first studio in North Vancouver to offer this option six years ago. Since then, we are happy to report that the North Shore high schools have implemented our alternative programs.
In conjunction with our dance classes in North Vancouver we offer young dancers the ability to join our dance companies. We have several youth dance companies including Dancers in Company, Dancers in Company II and Kids Dance Company.
Our Dancers in Company is an auditioned youth ballet theatre company that is designed just like a professional dance company. The Company allows young dancers the ability to train and perform as part of a professional company. Dancers take part in dance classes in North Vancouver that include classical ballet, pointe, jazz and contemporary. We also have regular and guest choreographers so you become used to professional dance methods.
Our dance company performs locally and on tour internationally. Entry into the program is through audition and dancers rehearse 2 hours per week. Our Dancers in Company has performed across the country and have traveled to New York and London.
