ABOUT US

  In 2018, The West Vancouver Dance Conservatory Association (WVDCA) was founded by a group of parents who came together to create a studio that brought the highest level of training to their children. Many successes were attained at the studio for dancers and teachers alike, however like many businesses, changes came in 2020. A new non-profit Society, The Western Canada Dance Society (WCDS) was born, to help facilitate the continuation and cultivation of this studio environment of love, care and respect in a new North Vancouver location. The teachers' passion along with the drive of the students, allows for a thriving and successful path in the pursuit of excellence in dance. We welcome any young dancer to join us who strives to be the best they can be.

                                                                                               

  The Dance Conservatory works hard to create a nurturing environment where education and art co-exist. We believe in combining artistry with strong technical foundations, fostering work ethic, integrity and creativity. We support ALL our students in understanding and developing their strengths and passion on a journey that will bring success. Students' individual dreams and goals are important to us as we endeavour to guide them to become confident young artists. We want to encourage our students to develop expertise in different genres and styles of dance, in a studio with family values and where lifelong friendships are made.
