As a guest of our facility, you will be welcomed by an abundance of bright, natural light and a warm and welcoming reception area. Our high ceilings and open concept provide our dancers, families, instructors, and friends with a comfortable and uplifting environment. Our dancers have access to 3 beautiful studios, each equipped with the best flooring and equipment. The safety and well-being of our students is of critical importance to us and the floors on which dancers train plays a huge part in the prevention of injuries.
Our dedicated Student Lounge was designed with our dancers unique needs in mind. With plenty of room to relax between rigorous classes, catch up with friends, stretch and warm up, connect to Wi-Fi and do homework or read a book the Lounge encourages relaxed downtime when needed and provides for a nice community space. Equipped with a fridge, microwave, and water cooler which provides 99.9% purified ice cold and hot water, stretch and warm up tools, a dedicated phone, and other amenities, our goal is to provide our dancers with everything they may need during their demanding daily training regime to stay fueled up and ready to go.
Our 1600 SF Pavlova Studio is perfect for large Grande Allegro, group choreography, and provides as an excellent means to rehearse for stage given its dimensions are at par with many full-size local and international theatre stages. Slightly larger than most commercial dance studios available for rent at well-known facilities in and around Vancouver, our Pavlova Studio is air conditioned, and boasts 8 foot mirrors, top of the line floating Harlequin maple sprung floors, Harlequin “Cascade” marley flooring, Harlequin maple hardwood barres, and custom-made barre mounts designed exclusively to suit the unique needs of our dancers.
Our Nijinsky Studio is 800 SF and ideal for regular classes for all ages, private lessons, as well as Conditioning and Rhythmic Stretch sessions. With an abundance of natural light, exposed high ceilings, air-conditioning, and 8 foot mirrors spanning the two walls opposite the windowed walls, Nijinsky provides as our second state of the art dance studio. Also boasting top-of-the line floating Harlequin maple sprung floors, Harlequin “Cascade” marley flooring, Harlequin maple hardwood barres, and custom-made barre mounts designed and built to spec for our dancers.
We are growing! We are thrilled to announce that our Diaghilev Studio is currently under construction and will provide dancers with an additional 1050 SF of top-of-the-line studio space by the start of our upcoming 2016|2017 academic year! Diaghilev Studio will boast the same exposed high ceilings, expansive natural light, air-conditioning, 8 foot mirrors, and of course, exceptional floating maple Harlequin sprung floors, Harlequin “Cascade” marley flooring, Harlequin maple hardwood barres, and custom-made barre mounts designed and built especially with our dancers in mind.
