Full-Time Training Programme
Our full time year-round programme is ideal and uniquely formulated for committed dancers in pursuit of the highest calibre of classical and contemporary training. There are two options for students to consider:
1. HALF-DAY PROGRAMME
Students ages 13 years and up have the opportunity to train from 1:45pm onward either as for-credit WVS Academy students or as non-credit half-day students through West Vancouver’s Pursuit programme, North Vancouver’s Peak Performance, or various Home Schooling options. The difference is that while the latter options do not award high school equivalent credits, those who enroll as WVS Academy students earn their grade-equivalent Physical Education and Applied Skills course credits upon successful completion of the program. Further information on Academy enrollment and requirements can be found below.
2. AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMME
Ideal for those ages 5 years and up, students have the option of enrolling in our after school programme at their appropriate level. For students enrolled in afternoon/evening classes who are 13 years and older, note that it may not be possible to participate in our full-time pre-professional programme as many of the classes are scheduled as half-day classes. While part-time enrollment is generally discouraged, we do allow lighter training schedules for those who are studying with us to compliment their primary activities (ie Rhythmic Gymnasts, Figure Skaters, Hockey Players, etc.) though minimum hours of study do apply and vary based on leveling and for safety reasons.
