Vancouver Burlesque Co.: what do users think?
Kelly Shih: Lola was a WONDERFUL instructor!! We had a private group session with her pre-valentine in 2020 and it was one of the best experience I have ever had!! I DO NOT and CANNOT dance, but Lola used humor, tips and tricks to help me. She is body positive, made me feel good about myself. I would 100% do this again with Lola!
Valeria Stephens (Panda): Consistent dedication to updating their routines and training to be covid safe, this airy, well ventilated studio takes great pains to stick to gentle exercises you can do masked, and natural (that's the window!) ventilation as well as offering a zoom alternative for every class.As the pandemic grinds on, it's nice to see a business that has adapted to the new normal.
Habeebah Williams: Such a fun, safe space for all :)
Elly Bronsro: My bridal party arranged an class here with a bunch of my girlfriends. Had so much fun. Lola was super sweet and BODY POSSITIVE!! Highly recommend!!

Luminesque Dance: what do users think?
C C: Just a wonderful place. With wonderful people. 💖
Harald Eberl: Good show and great atmosphere at the Celebrity
Wendy Hibberd: Luminesque has provided a space where people can be themselves and have a sense of safety and belonging. Both my daughters are dancing with Luminesque and I couldn’t be happier as I see them blossom and step into themselves. I have just joined in my first term with Luminesque because I am so inspired and grateful for what they have done for my girls and how I am loving being a part of this community. Thank you Luminesque!
Liberty Mulkani: Luminesque Dance is more than a dance studio—it is an inspiring and supportive community full of people of all ages, body types, and levels of dance experience from novice to pro. The classes are incredibly fun, the instructors are unbelievably talented, and the company leadership is generous and genuine. I feel so lucky to have found this hidden gem and hope it will continue to grow and thrive. Do yourself a favor and check out this unpretentious and unique studio! From drop-in classes to progression terms to shows, your only regret will be not having tried it sooner.
Freya Pearse: I've only just joined Luminesque Dance but already I can see what a supportive, fun and inspiring community this is. Classes with Chelsea, Vanessa and Mae have been challenging, energetic and full of cheers. I'm excited to keep learning and eventually perform on stage with these team.
Courtney Lewis: Amazing community of dancers, uplifting, inspiring and so welcoming.
Sonya K: I joined my first Luminesque dance class in September 2020 and little did I know that I would be joining such an amazing community of women. I love their passion and inclusivity - every BODY is beautiful and EVERYbody is a dancer.This company goes above and beyond to make sure that their students have the most positive, supportive, and safe experience. When necessary, they have done an incredible job at pivoting due to the public health orders changing. I am now going into my 4th term.
Samantha Ambrosio: Joining Luminesque was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The amount of support and positive energy in their community is overwhelming (in the best way possible). I am so happy to be a part of this crazy and fun community. I originally joined on a whim in 2018, and have stayed since.
Carrie Ng: Started dancing as an adult 5 years ago with this company, and it’s been a life changer in terms of confidence, as well as physical health. Also a great way to meet new friends as an adult :)
Amber Winkelmann: Luminesque saved my life! :)
Kristina Woo: I just completed my first term at Luminesque. I had no previous dance experience so this was completely out of my comfort zone! What a great addition to my schedule - the instructors were so nurturing and helpful and the group of ladies in my class were always so encouraging and positive! Thank you to the Lumi team for providing such a safe and healthy environment for us!
Carrie Pablico: If you’re coming to read reviews looking for a nudge to join Luminesque, I’m telling you- this is it. There is a space and place for everyone here. The beginner classes are very gentle and encouraging and for the more experienced dancer- you will be able to really take your dancing to that next level!!The company is very inclusive and has done amazing work to improve in areas where growth was needed. If you have a body- it’s welcome here and there is much diversity in the classes for age, shape, race, ability etc.If you’re intimidated by the heels aspect- don’t be. Start slow or do your first couple of classes without them. I dance in a dance boot with heels which really helps me to feel stable and strong.Then there are the shows. Just wait until you experience that!! They are not your average “recital” but rather a full on production with acting and stories and themes and costumes and killer dances. We just finished our Dark Side Part 2 on at the Vogue theatre! Aside from the performance itself, the magic of the backstage bonding experience with your group is what really stays with you. Women supporting women- reminiscent of getting ready for a high school dance with your besties!Life is busy and stressful and to take on a new hobby can feel daunting, but as a working Mom it reminds me how important it is to connect into a side of me that is often pushed aside.It feels damn good. I promise you- get brave and get your butt into class. You won’t regret it.
Ashleigh Kearns: Girl, it'll change your life.
Hilary Bloom: I'm a part of Luminesque for a lot of reasons. For sure, the experience of connecting and growing with a group of women for five months at a time and then performing in a live show with so many phenomenal humans is a huge part of the joy. But it's so much more than glitzy costumes and killer choreography. I do it for myself.Two hours a week where all I think about and focus on is this mom/wife/boss/daughter/sister/friend named Hilary. It's indulgent and it's essential. It's taught me what self-care can really be, and it's carved out the time for me to breathe and remember how to take up all my space. It's a huge part of what's carried me through 2021 and into 2022.If you're interested in trying but also terrified, that is a very normal feeling! I can't say that my experience would be the same for everyone, but I can say there's a place for everyone.
Kelsi Rivers: This is a wonderful community where dancers of all skill levels, body types, and self identities can come together in a safe place for self expression. I came to a trial class post partum after my first baby having not danced since my teens for fun exercise and I found so much more. The community element cannot be overstated, nor can the opportunity for personal growth that comes from pushing your comfort zone and getting on stage to perform, some for the first time ever. I look forward to class every week and show weekends are one of the highlights of my year. As a busy working mom I can say this is one of the only things I do purely for myself and it is magic!
Kelly England: This community is so powerful, so welcoming and so beautiful. If you’ve never danced a beat in your life or have your whole life, there is a place for you here
Yin Xzi: It's been an absolute joy finding Luminesque during a global pandemic - I danced as a kid and fell out of love with it only to fall back into love with it through this company. Especially during COVID, I've never felt more safe or encouraged to be confident in my body than dancing with Lumi! It's a community that embraces, and I love it.
Roxy Xrouz: I was just looking for a fun way to stay active once in a while when I signed up for Luminesque. What I found instead is a tight, supportive community of women supporting women (and all that identify as such) making magic together twice a year. This is a place that makes you believe you can do anything and prove that you can no matter what size or shape you are, neophyte or pro, it's all brought together by the Lumi Team in such a beautiful and empowering way.I've only been with Lumi one term so far but the way they have navigated the pandemic, maintaining that balance of being there for their members and respecting/adhering to PHO with everyone's safety in mind, is nothing sort of topnotch. This is not easy by any means for any company, but they did it beautifully and fiercely. Every plan is detailed and well thought out.I encourage everyone to at least take the step to try the free class. I did, and I was hooked.
Angie Zyia: Luminesque Dance... I had no idea what this was before I was convinced by a girlfriend this past term, I went to the free class and had a good time, I joined the term with the thought that I would enjoy a night out of the house once per week in the winter, I had no idea that there would be a performance at the end of it... eeek I was terrified and asked my instructor if I "had " to do the performance at the end and she assured me that I did not if I really didn't want to but comforted me and told me that I would likely change my mind (I was doubtful of this) before I knew it I was looking forward to the next class, each week I became more and more confident (I had never taken a dance class before in my life) Once we got the news of the theme of our performance my excitement grew. The comradery with the classmates became friendships, and a support system like no other, often there was significant emotions shared in class, we were all vulnerable on so many levels. This is what brought us all closer together, before we knew it we were meeting outside of class time to have fun little practices on our own. Excitement grew among us all, as the show got closer we bonded over nerves and and costume building etc. Luminesque dance was so far outside of my comfort zone that I felt it wouldn't be for me, and now that the show is over I am longing to see my dance babes. This was such an absolutely positive experience, individuals lifting each other up! Every babe cheering on the rest of the dancers. I can't wait to join the next term! #weartheheals
Sabrina Reid: This term I had such a creative dance experience and the teachers were very inclusive. I absolutely loved participating in the latest dark side show at the Vogue. ✨❤️🔥
Hannah-Ruth Engelbrecht: I joined a Luminesque dance programme in September 2021 to try and reconnect with myself given the general crazy time of the previous 2 years - it was the best decision! Everyone was committed to Covid safety, while maintaining an inclusive and caring community for everyone involved! More fun than I could ever have imagined (and I knew it was going to be great)!

iDance Mt Pleasant: what do users think?
XQ Y: I feel so lucky that I found Idance when I first moved to Vancouver. There are different styles of dance to choose and the instructors are so kind and talented. The environment is very super supportive and you can meet a lot of creative dancers and beautiful souls here. It’s like a big family.
mike S: No regard for the people who live in the buildings surrounding this studio. Many people have reached out to have the music turned down, and yet she refuses to be considerate or mindful of the community her building surrounds. Would not recommend supporting a business who can’t work cohesively with its community.
Tanya: I like visiting this place! Dance teachers, visitors and cozy ambience perk me up! I’ve managed to try different dance directions and different approaches to teaching. It’s very valued experience for me!
Indraja Mostaviciute: Welcoming atmosphere! Amazing instructors and friendly community. Definitely recommend to everyone!
Kumar Praveen: I absolutely love this dance studio! The instructors are knowledgeable, passionate, and make classes fun for all levels.
Rene Khazaee: I recently had the pleasure of taking classes at iDance and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed. The studio's commitment to diversity is evident, from the range of dance styles they offer to the diversity of their instructors and dancers.One thing that really stood out to me was the fact that they have BIPOC immigrants instructors which is something that is unfortunately not always common in other spaces in Vancouver. It was really refreshing to see such a diverse group of people coming together to share their love of dance.Overall, I would highly recommend iDance to anyone looking for a welcoming and inclusive dance studio. They embrace diversity and provide a space where everyone can come together to learn and grow as dancers.
shannon elmitt: SOOO FUN BEST PLACE TO DANCE! I love idance it’s such a great and welcoming space. As a newbie to dance Leo + Gios classes have been incredible :)
Giorgia Ricciardi: Coming to this studio as someone with no dancing background but who was so keen (and so shy) to start was the best decision. It is warm, welcoming, encouraging, and safe! A variety of fun classes that make it hard to choose from, too! I love it here.
Denise Blanch: Love this place! Best instructors, great environment and the friendliest staff ❤️❤️❤️
Anh Tang: Amazing teachers, variation in genres, diversity, and overall vibe. Highly recommend for adult learners who are new to dancing. Don't get scared by the levels they offer. Lots of folks who are new to dance doing intermediate classes and are very comfortable in their own skins doing so, unlike many other professional studios.
Michael Mwanzia-Leff: A beautiful community orientated and affordable dance studio. It has now become my favourite place in Vancouver :)
Zandrew Claveria: As someone who danced readily 10 years ago, there was a lot of pride to get back into it. I started coming more frequently a month ago and got the best value out of the introductory unlimited month.Like other reviews, I can say this is a community focussed studio that is very inclusive of the many types of dancers that are out there. Each teacher I’ve found concisely debriefs the class, breaks down the moves and is available for any questions. There is camaraderie amongst the students and I have created new friendships. Each person wanting the best for themselves and others.It has helped me break out of mould of keeping regimented, rigid and feeling formatted from past dance experiences. Each class promotes that sense of critical thinking and understanding of what feels good for your body. I highly recommend taking several classes as a new student or beginner, as there are many ice breakers to meet others in class.A great first class to take is Stu’s open level grooving class on Fridays. He has the ability to connect with the class as a whole all at once, to bring out the best in everyone. Also recommend Jesse if you want to learn foundational hip hop dances like popping. If you want to be challenged, I enjoy taking Kiara, Leo, Chris or Kyle’s classes as well. Lisa has a great yoga class on Saturdays that is fun and energetic but also restorative.Thank you iDance for revitalizing this love for dance and keep up the great work.
Olivia Boehmer: Had an amazing time doing a class here for a group event! Our instructor was so kind, helpful and fun and the studio was great. Highly recommend!
Anushka Kashyap: Love idance! Amazing instructors and environment!
Angel P.: Ashleigh's fats only dance class was amazing!!! I'll be coming back for sure. Thank you for having such a class.
Blake A: PLEASE STAY AWAY. Please refrain from supporting the nasty owner of iDance Studios Mount Pleasant , who under a fake facade of friendliness advocating for community and inclusivity has zero empathy for the atrocious unliveable environment she and her inconsiderate instructors have created for the community right behind the studio.The extremely loud noise emanating from the back studio spills out into the quiet courtyard late into the night every single day.After copious pleas to lower their music/shouting; they feel completely entitled to brazenly continue ruining the peace and quiet of families in the neighborhood.If you have an ounce of compassion and common sense please DO NOT SUPPORT this disgusting business.Amanda‘s level of audacity is despicable. As someone guilty often does—she prevaricates and falsely preaches about “respect and kindness” to unsuspecting customers.Meanwhile, she is intentionally wreaking havoc one lives of dozens of neighbours like a true hypocrite.
Jordan Halligan: I live in the building facing the dance studio and the noise is horrendous, we have tried to communicate to the owner about this on multiple occasions but have been met with rudeness everytime. She has zero regard for anyone living in the surrounding area. she preaches about how community driven she is but Cleary does not care about the community at all. If I could give less than one star I would
Liss Petrelli: The class was good and the teacher Clarisse was so kind and patient. It was my first class. They give you a nice welcome.
Celine Pio Roda: What a safe space for learning dance, I felt such belonging here and met a bunch of wonderful people even though I’m new to the community. Out of all the dance studios I’ve been to, the reception/front desk here is by far the friendliest!!
Linda H: I have been coming here on and off for about two years now. The owner, teachers, fellow dancers, and front desk staff are very kind. Great customer service and accommodating to students of all levels. Not intimidating at all.I would recommend iDance to anyone looking for a good workout, looking to improve body confidence, or just a great community to be a part of.
Fernanda Mattos: Inclusive, fun and amazing teachers!

D2 Dance Studio: what do users think?
Stuart Ho: Nice atmosphere and great dance floor
Dan B: So much fun here! And really nice little space!
Albert Saravi: Good place, very clean. Good air ventilation
BJClayden: Latin dance events for years. One of the best spots in town
Tom De Pauw: The Sunday night salsa and bachata and kizomba dance was well attended, very friendly, clean and spacious. I will surely return.
More Memorable Events: The Danceys are such a wonderful support for the local dance community. They are thoughtful and kind and run events that are inclusive and loads of fun. I smile so much when dancing at the ballroom that my face hurts. The dance instructors are talented and very good. Had an excellent bachata lesson with Carla and Javi. Wonderful experience for my neubie friend. He left with some useful skills and confidence to keep trying and having fun. Can't ask for more than that. And dancers of all skill levels enjoyed the lesson because everyone learned something. Can't wait to return.
Omar Serry: Amazing staff, studio and vibes. Special thanks to Patrick, Lily and Kebera!
Greg Dombowsky: Modern space with a good sound system. Relatively good parking nearby. Great instructors and owners. Their parties are often busy as well.
Farah S: Great managers and great teacherWill be back for many many other classes for sure.
Nathalie F.R.: I went there for wine and cheese night. Laid-back (I.e. not very intimidating) environment! I danced 4 hrs without a break. Was it the music? The dancers? The fact that I haven't danced in ages? The vino? Idk. Perhaps all the above. But yet one thing stands-- the staff here are down to earth and pleasant ^^
Greg Slonina: I'd say this is one of the best dance studios in Vancouver
Beth Mac Donald: I finally got to experience Salsa lessons. I am so thankful that I got to experience it here! The instructor was friendly, helpful, hands on and made lessons FUN. Great way to spend a Friday evening.
Paula Bruna Victória Ferreira Schutt: Dance school with great instructors! I took salsa lessons with Patrick and he is the best! Love their socials, very friendly environment! I just wish it could be more spacious like the old Dancey Ballroom, but I understand that Vancouver rentals are crazy expensive.
David Maud: Not only a great place to learn Salsa, but I love the social element of it as well. The best dance group I've joined!
Marni MacLeod: Great studio to learn all kinds of new dance styles. Taking a Salsa refresher right now and the instructors are great, the people are welcoming and over all it's been a wonderful experience.
Anton Lobashkov: Nina is a great teacher!
Rolando Hernandez: Nice space, central and easy to park.
Arturo Luna: If you like to Dance this is the right place.
Bill Cheung: Nice to see so many new dancers and many coming to dance Salsa and Bachata.

iDance Kitsilano: what do users think?
Eliza W: Awesome! I go to the other location more since it's closer, but iDance is awesome - from the instructors to the community. It's the place to go when learning dance. :)
Sulaiman Akram: Amazing place for zumba, Mondays at 5:20 pm
Hasti Rabierad: Awesome place to learn dance! Everyone is super friendly and involved and you’ll get the attention you need. They break everything down easily and you learn stuff you can use outside the studio. Once you take one class here you are absolutely hooked the teachers are incredibly kind and caring. I will never ever forget my first house class feeling absolutely terrified and overwhelmed thankfully teachers like Fran make the environment so welcoming. My first ever class being with Tereza not having a clue about SOCA she provides such an important background on the what SOCA is and where it comes from. When I first came to iDance lyrical & jazz wasn't available then recently Amanda's classes were added into the schedule at the Kitsilano location and I absolutely LOVE her classes and look forward to them each week hopefully there will be more of her class to book in the future. 1000% recommend this dance studio worth every dime.
Ash Outadi: Frans house dance classes are amazing! I will follow her to every studio she teaches house.She hits the perfect balance between instruction, repetition and just letting students dance and vibe to the music.
Jeanine Fahlman: Just had my first group dance class since ZUMBA was a thing 😂 it was a lot of fun and I really loved seeing how passionate the instructor, Serge, was about the dance style roots and the Jamaican dancers he had learned the dancehall moves from. It’s really different from any dance I’ve tried, and so creative. I’ll definitely be back to work on my moves!
Kira Loeb: Jojo's classes are always amazing! He his so fun and upbeat, and the classes always feel very inclusive and safe. The studio space at iDance is really lovely, clean and tidy with nice big mirrors. The staff are really kind and seem to have a really good system to keep things safe for covid. Definitely going to be taking more classes throughout the summer!
Joanna Michal: LOVE this dance studio! Super positive, kind, friendly instructors and some of the funnest choreography I have ever danced! REALLY enjoyed Casielle's gorgeous choreo tonight. Also a big fan of Sophie's classes 3, and Carla's modern/contemporary (awesome warm up) is another of my favs. Luxurious amount of space to dance in classes right now with the limited class sizes due to Covid ... just have to sign up for classes quickly when booking opens to snag a spot before they get full!
Jojo Zolina: It's a welcoming environment. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.
Ashley s: Positive:Communication,Professionalism,Quality,ValueJust finished the Virtual Party Grooves with Jordan. My girlfriends and I did the class together! Such a fun way to keep moving :) Jordan was a great teacher!! Informative, breaks the moves down, and good music choices!
Alyssa Sager: Oh my goodness is this review is long overdo! As a 39 year-old woman, I have to admit I was intimidated to join a 90's hip-hop class. Even though it was my teen / dance era, I hadn't danced in a class for something like 20 years. I was SO nervous, but a friend convinced me that I had to do it, and I am SO glad that I did!Not only was the place welcoming from the moment I stepped in, but the class instructor then causally eased us into the warm up and first steps without it feeling overwhelming. It was so much fun! She was hilarious, cracking 90's hip hop jokes while busting a move, which made learning the moves less intimidating - especially if we didn't pick it up right away. She went over the hard parts again and again until we got it, and was watching everyone, ensuring they felt comfy enough to move onto the next steps. By the end I was SHOCKED that I actually learned a dance to an entire song! I for sure thought it would be impossible.It was honestly such a great experience. I know idance is doing some online courses now given the new Covid restrictions, and I imagine they're still awesome. I'll be signing up for another soon. Thanks to all the instructors for keeping people fit during this wild time!
Alexa Milne: Positive:Communication,Professionalism,Quality,ValueThe staff and instructor (Carla) were so welcoming and friendly. They made what could have been an intimidating experience into a comfortable, energizing and fun space! Great for all ages, all levels - Carla made learning the routine easy and rewarding. Will definitely be back!
Jessica Cochran: Ive taken three different classes and I'm happy with the variety of dance styles and quality instructors that the studio boasts. I'll try a few more to take advantage of all the different styles that include influence from jazz, ballet, tap, contemporary, hip hop, and more.I felt welcomed, empowered, and safe in the classes. The studio is nice and sufficiently spaced for covid protocol.
Tom Yoo: iDance Kitsilano was a great studio to learn many types of dance and one I would consider signing up with again. The instructors were always encouraging and very energetic that for some I wondered how many cups of coffee they drank before class. What made classes enjoyable were that some had games and activities which I would have liked to see in more.This is one dance studio I would highly recommend to anyone even people with no dance experience since all classes are beginner friendly. It is definitely worth trying out. First class is only $10!Second Review: I had mostly a positive experience the first time so I decided to sign up a second time after a few months. I did not give a 5 star the first time because I felt that there was something missing. Dance is a social activity but the studio lacked community and I found the environment to be unwelcoming. The setup was not in a way to encourage mingling and the staff there were unfriendly and detached. During the pandemic, this behavior is understandable but the studio has been practicing social distancing even before. I was there to have fun but was disappointed which discourages me from continuing. Plus this was the only fitness and dance studio that didn't ask me (twice) whether I wanted to continue after my pass was done which gave me the impression they didn't really value my business there. The classes itself were mostly enjoyable but the only thing was there were instructors, especially new ones that did not respect the concept of "open level" and forced students to do moves they were not physically capable of doing. I was also thinking, why not split up the popular classes into different levels since there are a lot of people.
Keith, Christine Tam: Taking the kpop open class and Nancy is fun, professional, and keeps it real! Good for beginner dancers or higher level! I enjoy it enough to keep going. Includes classic hip hop steps with current kpop hip hop!
Mae Boudreau: I am so happy with IDance Studios! Both the Mount Pleasant and Kitsilano studios are great! I just joined their VID (Very Important Dancer) for unlimited dance classes with both studios! And if I can't get enough I could also dance online with their recorded dances and also virtual classes if I wanted to too! I just love the friendly people and a place where I can just dance so freely! There are so many different types from Contemporary, Street, Hip Hop and K-Pop! I am so happy to just be dancing and enjoying my free time at the studio!
Carla V: Awesome variety of classes and instructors! I have zero dancing experience and have been successful in every class. Studio is clean and the staff are super nice. Highly recommend if your looking for a fun, active, indoor activity this winter!
Soy Bean: I dropped in one of their classes on their grand opening day, Oct 1st. Since then I can't stop loving this place! I tried all different classes, Jazz Funk, Jazz, Sexy Street, K-Pop, Hip-hop, House, Party Grooves, R&B... Oh I can't say which one is my most favorite one as I love all of them! All the teachers here are so amazing with not only their great skills but also with their being so kind and patient. Here you would not feel embarrassed to raise any questions, as the teachers always encourage you to do that. Most teachers here can even remember us students' names right after one or two classes. Owner/receptionists are also very nice and sweet! They make us feel so welcome and warm. Oh, almost forgot to mention, I also met new friends here. After my boring job and my boring studying, this studio really brightens my evenings and brings me so much fun!

BC Dance: what do users think?
Charlotte Vis: I had the same experience as other people who reviewed here. I emailed Nestor multiple times and said I had a Groupon and no response. I called him he said he emailed (obviously didn't) and that he would email me back again, which he never did.My partner contacted him without saying Groupon and of course he got back within two days.This guy is a sleezebag, do yourself your a favour save the headache, and don't buy lessons from this guy he's a scammer.
Tatyana Hernandez: I had a very bad experience with Nestor from BC Dance. I bought 10 passes for my friend and I for Salsa classes and when I emailed him, he never responded.I then called him, and he was angry I bought the passes, and told me I have to wait spots to be available. AND said he was working and can NOT talk to me. So rude! Zero customer service.I have followed up 2 times by email with no response! Do not go to this place.
roya shurouni: The are stealing your money. I registered for bachata classes and paid 3 months ago , but they never offered me any classes and kept bringing excuses that we don’t have any class right now. If you didn’t offer any class, why did you allow me to enrol and charge me???
Ankur Sharma: It is a wonderful dance studio.Neha is a great instructor..Love the energy in class. Perfect for beginners to advanced.
Sarah Louadi: I have been going to BC Dance in various capacities for the past 2 years, as a student, an assistant, and to attend special events.I generally enjoyed the classes I took there. I would often see Nestor (the manager, who also teaches there) go out of his way to keep the space clean or fix an amenity. He also constantly strives to renovate the studio for various purposes, which offer variety to renters (exercising, boxing, dancing, massages, and even chess). Every time I go, I would find Nestor either working on a new project or thinking about additions to make the studio more versatile, welcoming, and efficient.When I assisted him in teaching salsa classes, we would talk about how to make the best out of the time allocated, so that people leave fulfilled. He takes feedback seriously, and is genuinely concerned about the students' experience. He would often go overtime because he cared more about transferring as much knowledge as possible than keeping track of time :)The studio is easily accessible (a few blocks away from the Canada Line in Yaletown Station) and nicely situated so you can go for drinks or food with your classmates after class.
Julie Hunter: I love this place - the zumba instructors are fantastic, super high energy and the classes are really fun. Done zumba in lots of places and the instructors here are my favorite of everywhere so far. It's a no-frills place but the groupon is a great deal and you get a great workout with nice people.
Ana & TJ: Nestor is an amazing dance teacher and he has a special talent for teaching beginners. My fiancé went from zero dance experience to assisting with the beginner class that we used to attend, within half a year. If you want a great class environment, with a knowledgeable, patient, and fun teacher, sign up for Nestor's salsa classes - beginner or intermediate. You won't regret it.

Ballet Lounge: what do users think?
Yuqi Xiao: I just started dancing here and it's been so great! The teachers offer lots of corrections and encouragements. I'm so glad that we have a local ballet studio specialized for adults who want to learn proper techniques. The prima membership is a great deal for their unlimited dance and conditioning classes.
Anushka Kashyap: Love the Ballet Lounge! Beautiful studio and space!
Angelica Yee: Positive:Communication,ProfessionalismProfessional and fun instructors who offer a variety of styles for dancers of all levels. They also offer fun conditioning and HIIT classes that I love and I'm not even a "workout" person. Personally I appreciate how the studio is always clean and the instructors put your safety first!
Anita P: Wonderful place to take a drop-in dance class. So much fun. Very friendly staff and students. I have attended several different classes and enjoyed all of them. I have now been attending for 6 years and have notice a huge improvement in my dancing and overall fitness.

It's a fantastic place to be and a great way to stay active, healthy and happy!
Theresa P: I’ve been dancing at Ballet Lounge for almost five years, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about it. The instructors are professional, knowledgeable, encouraging, and most of all, making every class enjoyable and fun. They offer a variety of dance/fitness classes at different levels. The inclusive environment welcomes everyone, and the warmth of the BL community is contagious. I genuinely feel empowered not only physically but also mentally over the years by dancing with and meeting all those fantastic people at Ballet Lounge.
Sheena Lee: I love taking classes at The Ballet Lounge! I have been coming since the very beginning and recommend the BL to everyone. It's inclusive, body positive and has the most wonderful instructors. I can't say enough positive things about The Ballet Lounge.
Tia Rambaran: I have injuries that have been very, *very* difficult and discouraging. Hiking, running, and most forms of exercise aggravate me. Chronic pain has worn me down over the years.I used to dance when I was younger, and recently, a friend told me about Ballet Lounge.I took two private classes with Suzy (and Gizmo!) because the pressure of a group class isn't something I can handle right now.Not only is it a wonderfully happy place with light-up bars, you get some animal therapy with her sweetest little yorkie.Ballet is a magical art form that allows you to connect with your body. The mind-body connection is more intense than other forms of exercise, as you need to become present even with the tiniest muscles.Not only do you work up a sweat, but the self-expression that dance provides is emotionally healing.Suzy is very generous with her time. She makes sure that my body is okay. Her encouragement is a refreshing treat in the ballet world. I am used to teachers barking orders and/or shaming my errors from when I was a kid and teen. This is why I didn't return to ballet for so long.Ballet Lounge is a most welcomed and *needed* change in the dance world. Honestly, it's the most uplifted I've felt in three years.Thank you, Ballet Lounge! :)
Morgan Thompson: Suzy is an amazing teacher and everybody is so patient! There hasn’t been a day where I wasn’t having fun!
Leah Shin: An amazing place to get your sweat on! I was so nervous about getting back into dance after over 10 years of not doing it but the team at the Ballet Lounge gave me the most encouraging welcome. A great way get introduced to dance and to improve your fitness!
Grace: This place is so lovely, every person I’ve met at the studio so far have been amazingly supportive and friendly. So happy to be dancing again and couldn’t have been at a better place! ♥️
Emily Murphy: I temporarily joined this studio and would have stayed had it not been for a move away. The atmosphere and friendly approach are definitely highlights. You feel so welcome here. The classes I took were awesome and pushed me without making me feel inadequate. I would highly recommend taking a class here and joining if you enjoy it as much as I did.
Naba Mukhtar: Omg I CANNOT hype this place enough! Very friendly and helpful community/instructors, nice variety and frequency of classes, and so much fun! It is very hard to find a good ballet studio specifically for adult learners, so Ballet Lounge is a very rare gem and Vancouverites are lucky to have it. The studio experience is ideal, but now that I don’t live in Vancouver anymore I dance with them via zoom and that’s nice too :)
Nitecraft: Positive:Communication,Professionalism,Quality,ValueIf you want to dance ballet, this is the place to do it! Suzy is the best and all you need to do is go and you'll know exactly why :)
Helaine Boyd: This place is the best! The owner and instructors are so positive and supportive. Great for both beginners and advanced dancers
Moj Noroozi: I couldn't start my Saturday morning better than this! A love ballet class for beginners full of energy and joy, Suzi and Miss Neid are both so kind and helpful
J E: Ballet Lounge has a cancellation policy which is fair. However, sometimes life calls for some flexibility. I cancelled my class less than 15 minutes past the cancellation cut off because of a sudden flare up of a pre-existing injury that the Ballet Lounge was well aware of before my first class a month or so prior. They refused to budge on the policy other than offering to let me take another class in the next couple of weeks. Obviously, that wasn't going to work since I was cancelling due to an injury. That's not just bad customer service. It's bad business.Edit: The lies below aren't even worth debating. I cancelled at 23 hours and 47 minutes instead of 24 hours. All I asked was that they give me 13 minutes of grace.I've also unsubsribed from their email list at least 20 times and yet I receive a minimum of 3 emails a week!
Amelie S.D.: Positive:QualityThe lovely instructors are all top notch, so friendly and awesome. The environment in the studio is always welcoming. Thanks for making my dance dreams come true :)
Rogues West Actors Studio: The moment I walked in to Ballet Lounge I felt welcomed. The environment Suzie and Natalie create is inclusive, non-judgmental, a love of dance and a passion for teaching their classes. There are a lot of dance studio's that feel intimidating - The Ballet Lounge feels like a creative home where the instructors truly care about their dancers. The Ballet Lounge is a place of joy and transformation.Christiane Hirt
Pamela Vio: Joined in May via zoom links due to Covid and brought back the motivation and fitness needed. Made me feel so welcome and noone judges you. You can go at your own pace and modify as required. Everyone is so engouraging. Definately give it a try :)
Michal Tk: I have always wanted to be really good at ballet and be able to move to music the way I could in my mind. But being an adult I thought that dream was over since I have only ever had one year training in my life. Then through an internet search for best adult ballet classes in Vancouver, I kept coming across the Ballet Lounge. It had the highest ratings wherever I looked and sounded really cool.I started taking drop in classes as I could (with young kids) and they even let me bring my 3 year old so I could dance while she sat on a blanket near me. I couldn't wait until the kids were in school so I could take more!Then Covid hit and all business were forced to close. The Ballet Lounge quickly set up on-line classes in the same format the regular classes were in. You could pay for a single drop in class or pay a flat fee per month for a limited or unlimited amount of classes. You could come and go from any class and try them all, which I thought was amazing.I admit I was slow to get on the on-line class sign up. I had my family all at home all of a sudden and was a bit overwhelmed. But I have slowly started taking classes with them from home. (This after trying all sorts of free on-line ballet on you-tube). I have to say for a non-studio class, it is pretty good. You still get the same excellent teaching, tips, and corrections, you feel a part of the class and community, and you get that great self-effacing, sweet humour of Suzy's, the founder and owner of Ballet Lounge.As we go into yet another lockdown and the studio doors are closed to the Ballet Lounge (on-line keeps going), I began thinking how devastated I would be if it closed for good. I actually want Ballet Lounge to stay open more than any other small business I know. I have plans! Plans to become as good a dancer as I can! Plans to become flexible and touch my toes (I actually am really inflexible)! Plans to stem the flow of aging and stay in shape! Plans to improve my posture, core strength and eliminate problems I have had since childhood with a bad back. And the Ballet Lounge's online classes are my route there during these Covid times. I absolutely recommend them to anyone of any age anywhere in the world! All ages, shapes, flexibilities and levels are met with an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher. Suzy and the other teachers I have had the chance to take a class with there are all so encouraging and make me want to be a part of it all.

Biltmore Cabaret
Be the 1st in the ranking
exclusive page

Address: 2755 Prince Edward St, Vancouver, BC V5T 0B5, Canada

Telephone: +1 604-566-5757

Business type: Live music venue

Biltmore Cabaret: what do users think?
Jeff Raimondo: This place has always been a great venue to see a live show! Great sound, nice space, close to the action, room to dance, good bar with decent prices. The private security is kind of a bummer because they don’t really seem to understand or appreciate the organism that is a live music performance (telling people they’re standing in the wrong space, being a bit standoffish when it comes to traffic redirection of the crowd) but it’s not enough to ruin your good time. Long love the Biltmore!
James Duncan: This dirty little basement venue is the place to see artists before they get big. Such a fun time here, highly recommend supporting bands and comedians on their way up, out or wherever… the photo is of Tommy Newport and band.
Gonz VonLog: Love watching live shows here, I’ve seen so many great ones. Only downside is the stage being at ground level, makes it hard to see when crowded
Nathalie Mila: Fun shows, kind staff.
Renu Singh: Friendly staff from bartenders to front door team. Awesome venue for intimate shows! Drinks on the pricey side.
Chaz Williams: Most intimate concert venue, always an amazing show whenever I've visited.
Kelsey Morris: Always a good time! Friendly staff and great music
Karl Poldre: This place rules. Amazing live music. I came in on a Saturday for my Birthday and both the manager, Matt, and the band playing went completely above and beyond to make sure I had a good experience.I will absolutely be back!
mary s: War and TreatyWhat a fabulous showVenue was great
oaksound studio: Great atmosphere and awesome sound system. I love playing here
Vanessa Mousavizadeh: So enjoyed the Jake Wesley Rogers show this March. Fantastic show. Comfortable space, nice ambiance, standard drinks. Really nice, welcoming staff. I would have been so grateful if you'd offered food options. A girl has got to eat! I'll definitely be back but might bring some takeout.
Kurt Yesilcimen: Hard to find the entrance and a bit of a crammed feeling but it's nice to see a smaller venue with decent enough drink options and pinball machines. Came for an event and the seating arrangements were a bit odd. Will have to go back to see it in a different setting.
Scott Alexander: The Biltmore Cabaret cares greatly about their guests hydration and as such has a self-serve free cold water tap. I’d give them 6 gold stars for this alone, but their staff are also friendly and the concert environment is top notch. I do wish the stage was a bit bigger, but its smaller stature provides a more intimate experience.
Chelsea Bowers: One of the best music venues in Vancouver
Nic Bachleitner (Suprastitious): No parking, $8 for a can of lucky and they ask for a tip...acoustics were great but they over sold for seating and numerous people were standing around complaining. Go early if you want to get a seat
Anastassia Zukova: I thought this place was great for a comedy spot. The only less than ideal thing about it is that the entrance is in the alley and it seems to often have homeless here and there (generally, Vancouver seems to have quite a problem with this). But if you come let’s say about 15min before a show, there should be other people in line and that feels much less dodgy. That said I am a female and was waiting by myself because I got there about 30 minutes early, so definitely felt a little uneasy. Other than that, the inside is super Cody and the drinks were good enough. Fun time all in all.
Jesse Neudorf: Awesome place to see a band you like. Good beer. Smaller venue
Byron Pelly: Pretty enjoyable experience, venue was nice. The drinks are a little expensive. They do offer a free water station. I would come back for another event.
Izi Kavazo: Dark and tight, but in the best possible way. It's a great place to see a small band. It feels intimate, but not awkward. There are good nooks and crannies to sit in on the edges and you can see the stage from almost every one.
Hannah Jarvis: Was there for NYE and it was the worst DJ experience of my life. The transitions were brutal and it was really hard to dance to.
mason lemons: Very nice place for live shows
