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!

Baza Dance Studios: what do users think?
Jonathan Chawla: Tracie remembered my name the second time I was at class. Great community!
Solène Prud'homme: Amazing dance school in Vancouver for salsa bachata kizomba! I took kizomba classes with Tracie & Cesar last year and they were just amazing! I learnt a loooot with them and I miss those classes so much. Also took some bachata lady styling classes with Krystal, loved her dancing style, and learning a routine as solo, which helps a lot for confidence on the dance floor. Also they have the best socials in town, with 3 rooms (salsa, bachata, kiz) Looking forward to going back there when I’ll be in Vancouver again 💜
Jessica Villavicencio: I love their classes👏🏾 salsa, bachata and reggaeton🔥 I find all instructors super friendly
Fraser McGee: Welcoming atmosphere with great instructors. Tracie is an awesome teacher- she’s both fun and committed to helping the pupils in her class learn and improve. Very positive experience with this studio
ozan ateşmen: Wowww absolutely fantastic dance studios, they are so talented and Tracie , she is wonderful instructor, I love you ❤️
Reagan Bradley: Karima was everything we needed in a dance teacher for our wedding dance. She customized a dance to our personalities and skill level and made every moment learning it total fun. The end product was gorgeous and everyone’s highlight of the night! Forever thankful for this Bollywood QUEEN!
Wil Iturrino: Excellent dance studio. The staff is wonderful..Always a great time
Brandon Thornhill: The Baza Dance crew are all AWESOME! So inclusive and welcoming to people of all levels. We LOVE our dance classes!
Karen Swaffield: This is a very welcoming and friendly dance studio. The Latin Fusion class is awesome. Salsa lessons with Wayne & Kristal are also a lot of fun.
Two Sheds: Robson free dance had not enough follows so some of us had to watch from the sidelines until we left from humiliation.
Flora Gordon: Baza is a great dance studio. They are very friendly to beginners as well as those who may not be able to come to the studio frequently. I have taken Zouk, Salsa, Latin Grooves, and Latinsanity. I enjoyed them all!
Nat Pliner: I’ve just started classes at Baza Dance with John and Celina and they have been so much fun! The studio has a really positive and safe environment and everyone I’ve interacted with has been incredibly helpful and friendly. I haven’t always felt the same with instructors at other studios so I’m really glad I signed up at Baza. Also appreciate that there is an option to take a bachata class that is not immediately over sensual and that some Dominican bachata moves are sprinkled in!
Stephen Smith: I had such an amazing experience at this dance studio. I've been taking Latin Dance classes for over 15 years, at multitudes of different studios from countless teachers -- so it is not without comparison when I say that the instruction at this studio is world class! Jorelle , Monica, and Kristal were such amazing dancers AND teachers. It's one thing to dance well, but to be able to break steps apart and explain thoroughly, that's another. I had some major breakthroughs with my dancing here! Also, the vibe was extremely welcoming and kind. Much love for Baza Dance Studios!
Shanda L: Love this place for bachata and salsa! Always friendly and inviting. I recommend this place if you want to learn how to dance You will be dancing in no time!
Leanna Boyer: I am thrilled that Baza is offering virtual classes, otherwise I would not have access to high quality, fun instruction!!
Lydia Klemensowicz: I've fallen in love with dance classes again thanks to Baza! I've been attending Latin Pop with Lauren since January and I feel so good in class - I literally look forward to Monday evenings every week! I love the choregraphy style class and Lauren is an amazing, energetic and approachable teacher. Her classes are very beginner friendly, but also a bit of a challenge - and tons of fun and laughs are had along the way!
Karen Lee: I’ve been trying various dance studios for the last few months. Thank Gawd I found Baza! It is a safe and welcoming environment, especially for beginners.Jojo and Clement give me life!
Rebeca Hatamian: We love Baza Dance Studios!!My son is 5 yrs old and is very entusiastic about going to dance class!His confidence has improve and his joy of life overall.. priceless!Now is learning to follow instructions and follow a choreography :)
Ala Wroblewska: Taking a beginner level class and I'm really enjoying the format and vibe. Can't recommend the instructors and class enough!
Suzanne Rushton: I love Baza!! I've been only three times so far but the classes have all been a delightful blend of fun, learning and community. The instructors, Javier and Carla, are AMAZING. I can't say enough about how great they are with beginners (like me) but also at working with varying levels of students. They are true professionals, they kept us on track but also kept us laughing. They have really made dancing seem accessible to me. I'm excited to continue the journey!
Arash Khodadadi: Well-maintained dance studio and friendly staff. Enjoyed the beginner Salsa dance class with John as drop-ins. Later we signed up for more classes with Arely and the classes were super good and strongly recommended for whoever starts Salsa.

Harbour Dance Centre: what do users think?
isabelle t: rachel ginter is quite rude and unhelpful, don't recommend her at all. very unprofessional
jennifer brouse: I feel like I found my mother ship. I have lived in Vancouver almost as long as Harbour Dance has existed, but for some reason, I never took the leap. A few years back tried a couple of intermediate classes with Nathan (so fantastic!) after he subbed hip hop at my gym. I was mostly able to keep up with that level, but I ended up injuring my foot (because I did it in heels the second time and wasn't ready for that!) and then the pandemic happened.I have returned to HD this month with much trepidation and anticipation. The intro classes are challenging, but they are doable and engaging, with cool, current choreo. All the instructors are very supportive and encouraging of intro level students. The pace is brisk and the classes are full, but I am meeting so many new people. In a city that can seem cold and unfriendly, this studio is an oasis of like minded people passionate about music and movement. I don't have a formal dance background, but have danced all my life, been active with fitness and yoga and fine art modelling. Choreography can be intimidating, but I am going for it!I am so excited to have begun this journey and life long dream. My favourite classes so far are Intro Keep it Sexy with Trey on Mondays and on Thursdays with Carlo. I am also taking as many classes with Eric as possible. The staff are so kind and friendly. You will learn moves and have fun here! Don't be shy! Everyone is self conscious, if you chat you'll make friends so easily here. Even the experienced dancers are super friendly to beginners.
Celine Pio Roda: For everyone saying HDC isn't for beginners, do try Laura Kirchner's Heels class or Heels Progressive Workshops as they do a good job teaching you the very fundamentals of jazz funk/heels/femme dance styles. For Hip Hop, do try Ken Yung or Ritchie. Speak to the HDC staff to figure out which beginner classes would be a better fit for you as not all beginner classes are the same in difficulty level. The great thing about HDC is you grow exponentially fast in your dance journey when you train here.
95 Stoney: be sure to never be late for classes here for whatever reason. The receptionist is so nice that she would just hung up the call while you are explaining the reason for being late.Amazing customer service.
ZHEN CONG: Pretty nice to have this place to learn dancing. Real beginner friendly. ❤️
D C: Echoing other reviewers that this studio is NOT beginner friendly. Purchased the intro offer but only went to one class because of the stand-offish and judgmental vibe. For the record I took the intro class with Mary Gavilan. If you're a true beginner who feels shy and intimidated, I recommend trying Formation Studio instead.
NONO SHEN: Best dancing studio i have found in Vancouver. All teachers are so friendly and amazing - they made me not only fall in love with dancing, arts but also life.
R Pono: I can't emphasize enough how much of a gem this studio is in the city. There's really no comparison with other dance studios. They have the best classes, incredibly talented and skilled teachers and really aligned with the current industry. Whether you're a professional seeking to upgrade or polish up your skills or an absolute beginner looking to explore the joys of dance, there's a class and teacher here for you 💕
Olivia Boon: Amazing, amazing, amazing - this studio is my home away from home. My dance journey has been filled with love and positivity thanks to the wonderful teachers, owners, and staff at Harbour. Try a class or a training group, I promise you won’t regret it!❤️ Thank you Harbour, for everything! ❤️
Ingrid Oliveira: TLDR: Unfortunately, the reviews stating that this place is not for beginners are true. It is also not a place for people who only dance as a hobby. It feels more like a place for very experienced dancers to practice their skills rather than a place to learn.I bought the "new student" package to take ballet classes and, after my first class, I don't feel like coming back. I've danced ballet for a few years in the past, but only as a hobby. Since I didn't want to start from zero (beginner class), I booked the intermediate class which is described as "for dancers with anywhere from one to four years experience who enjoy a slower-paced class with less complex dance steps."While the dance steps aren't very complex, the class is really fast-paced. Most "students" are actually professionals or highly experienced dancers or have been taking classes with the instructor for a long time. So it is easy for them to memorize long and fast sequences, but if you are new to HDC, you just stay there trying to catch up while feeling lost and dumb. In addition, because the class is so full, the instructor is unable to do hands-on corrections, and there is also no interest in the new students' backgrounds to make sure that they keep up with the class. The least that could be done is to place the new students near experienced dancers at the barre so they could have a reference during the barre exercises. Even giving the new students slower variations to get used to the instructor's style would be enough to make us feel more comfortable in our first couple of classes.I also asked about the beg/intermediate class, hoping that it would be a better fit. However, the instructor said that it was basically the same as the intermediate class. So what's the point in giving it a different name? As the schedule for the beginner classes* is impossible for me, I've decided not to use the other classes from the package that I bought. It was a highly uncomfortable experience for me, I've never felt more out of place and just wanted to leave the class asap.*The beginner classes are clearly not for beginners, since they would be more of my level and I do have previous ballet experience.Note: the instructor, staff, and dancers were all super friendly, the music used in class was great, and the choreography was beautiful. However, I'm just too dumb to pick up fast-paced sequences after a 5-second explanation in my first class.
Sizhuo Qi: I’ve been taking ballet beginner class at UBC and I find the ballet beginner class of HDC isn’t for beginner students.The instructor didn’t teach any basic hand positions or feet positions, she just did all techniques combined directly assuming everyone is familiar with the terms and movement. I felt like it’s a more intermediate class.I noticed most of students in the class can already dance well and they could follow and memorize the practice movements with no problem even the instructor went through what we need to do for the practice really really quickly, the students don’t look like beginners to me.Anyways, it’s hard for a real beginner with no dance background or experience to follow the class.
Candice Zhang: Great studio but my only problem is that it is not necessarily beginner friendly - for context, I’ve been dancing as a hobby for around 2-3 years now (on and off), and the beginner classes are still pretty difficult for me! It also doesn’t help when a lot of the students in beginner classes are obviously professionals who can do full splits and very advanced techniques! It would be great to have more true beginner classes.
Reene Weston: My daughter went and she really enjoyed the variety of the attendees
Ann: TLDR: Great studio for confident dancers, not great for beginners.(Context: I danced from when I was age 5-17, and started taking beginner Hip Hop classes at Harbour Dance during university. So I have a lot of experience dancing I was not professional or particularly exceptional. I took Harbour Hip Hop beginner classes for 3 years, on and off.)Fantastic staff and instructors. Some really fun classes to take with incredible niches being represented. There's a lot to be desired, though, in terms of overall infrastructure and accessibility (though I don't blame them directly, finding real estate in Vancouver is difficult at best, but I think it's important to mention as it affects your experience).I think they are victim to their building's restrictions as it does not fit the number of people coming to the classes. Both the change rooms, classrooms, and reception area are incredibly cramped. You are also always brushing shoulders with professional dancers, which is quite intimidating when new to the studio. It's hard to dance full out when your classmates are only a meter away from you. The classrooms get very hot and stuffy, especially the downstairs studios.There's a particular gamble you take when paying for a class. Eventually, I had to stick to one teacher because it wasn't clear what kind of music/style other teachers were going to teach (likely a common gamble when taking a class broadly called "Hip Hop"). I once got stuck in an hour class with a teacher who was especially harsh to beginners (the most anxiety I've ever experienced in a dance class).It's hard to bond with an instructor because of how many students attend a class and the instructor is often racing off to somewhere else after class (home or another class) so there's a lack of rapport unless you push your way into talking to them. I mean, I can imagine how hard it is to connect with the hundreds of students they teach alongside providing quality teaching, I deeply sympathize.Another thing that was very stressful was how the seasoned company dancers would join beginner classes. It has the same effect as graduated students visiting their high school teachers, it's very off-putting and defaults the spotlight to them. I imagine they envision themselves taking on a sub-teacher position so more dancers can see the choreo (wouldn't be necessary if they had smaller class sizes) but their relationship with the instructor can make attendees feel othered.If you're used to dance culture, you likely won't find any of what I've said off-putting or anxiety-inducing. Having experienced dancers join your class could be fun and exhilarating if you don't experience insecurity about your own skills. But I think overall when you're catering to beginners, having everyone take humility in their ability is really important. You sign up for a beginner class to be surrounded by people like you, equally unsure and vulnerable. So when a very experienced dancer comes in it can be upsetting and unexpected.All that being said, I've moved on from Harbour because the amount of anxiety and intimidation I felt from being jostled around in the cramped and stuffy reception area to professional dancers joining beginner classes was too much. Unfortunately, Vancouver has a meager selection of quality Hip Hop Drop-In Adult classes and leaving has left me with very few options (Culturally Defined has been one option I've thought about due to their more restrictive registration, individualized growth focus, and beginner friendly progressives). What was inaccessible about Harbour can't truly be changed unless someone buys them a gigantic studio and encourages a more welcoming environment to new dancers of all ages (though professional dancers coming to class + the high school graduate metaphor seems like an issue that far exceeds a dance school and is a personal ego problem). I wish the best for them and all the dancers there, it was a fun couple years but I am far too tired to cope with the roller-coaster of anxiety this studio is.
Mia November: Absolutely love Eric malapad's grooving class
Terri Critchley: Groovy vibe, excellent selection of classes taught by reputable professionals, fun from start to finish! Highly recommended.
Yunduz Rakhmangulova: Tried ballet intro class. It was quite fun, good energy, good speed.
Kirsten Thomson: I have really enjoyed coming here and it has reignited my love for dance! The teachers are are very talented here and have great choreography, and the studios are quite large and nice.My reason for 4/5 stars is because some of the Intro level classes are truly beginner friendly, and some are not. I think once you find your favourite teacher (for me it’s Sydney!) you can have the most fun, because even within the same style of dance the classes are really different depending on the teacher.
Symone Dhariwal-Verma: Welcoming, challenging classes for all levels and styles. Had a fantastic time
Tim Hu: Harbour Dance Centre is my favourite Vancouver dance studio! Every teacher is so friendly and I just loved the open and welcoming atmosphere of the studio. Definitely a great place to dance and meet people in the dance community. Incredible variety of classes. Lots of great year-round and summer programs for dancers seeking more of a commitment. The location is great and very transit-friendly.
patrykaj: Salsa dance teacher is a good teacher and very funny

Arthur Murray Dance Studio of Vancouver, Canada: what do users think?
Adam Watson: Fantastic service, so helpfully and friendly, great dance lessons and could not have asked for better experience.
Kenny B: We are a 60+ couple who went for our wedding first dance lessons here. We were lucky to get Julia as our instructor. She is amazing. She quickly choreographed an impressive routine for our off-the-wall songs. Shout out for Arthur Murray and Julia!
Andrew: Sheryle and her staff have been absolutely delightful, professional and completely accommodating towards my partner and I who are raw beginners - five stars for customer service!
Deepika Bharti: Its a place where you get kind ,patient & lovely people as your trainer/Teachers, Even overall everyone is really warm.....They are like International Champions but you can never tell as they are just so humble!! If there is any iota of doubt or you're perturbed about the price and wanna go elsewhere, Let me assure YOU WILL GET TRUE EXCELLENCE!!......I highly highly recommend Anthony (kind, super fun, TRUE PERFECTION!!) & Curt (Soooo Patient, Fun ,YOU'LL NEVER BE BORED WHEN HE IS TEACHING )........Now go and start dancing :)
Dana Christopherson: Studio and teachers are really great. We have the intro package which teaches you a few easier dances to see what you like. There are social distance classes as well as zoom based ones (we have seen those for groups) and everyone is wearing a mask which is great.
Jenny Graham: A wonderful space, with wonderful students and wonderful teachers. Whether you’re a beginner or have danced for decades you’ll find a community of people waiting to welcome you and some of the best dance instruction you’ll ever receive.
Peter Kostka: Amazing instructors who focus on teaching you how to lead and follow first. We'd gone to a lot of dance schools before, and this is the first that really taught us how to dance as a couple.

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!

Goh Ballet Academy: what do users think?
Morgane: A great place for your child to learn ballet.
Sizai Zhong: Very professional academic institutions, very considerate service, temporary cancellation of courses, can also make up again, too considerate! Great love!
Jimena Roche: Everyone is so nice. You feel welcomed.
Christine Kerr: Ms.Tanya Phelps adult ballet classes are beautiful, empowering and uplifting.
KIT LIU: I talked to Goh ballet after my daughter attempted first class that we are still concerning about the covid situation. We would like to get credit and pay the tuition for the future use when Covid is over.The administration office wants us continue to pay and not going to make it as credit even if we are not attending class during this special COVID circumstance. Asking people to sign an unreasonable contract during COVID is selfish. I don't think I am the only parent who has this kind of concern and request. If Goh Ballet only cares about money during COVID and no show of human kindness, we will yield nothing to unreasonable demands. I even asked what if we caught up COVID at Goh Ballet, the administrator told me that we will not get COVID because they are following safety protocols. How can someone who isn't in lemology be so sure about this??? This just shows ignorance, arrogance and irresponsibleness. I am following safety protocols which suggests people not go out unless it is really necessary.
Kit Morris: My 10 year old daughter, Mikayla, has been dancing at Goh Ballet since she was three years old. It all started with the themed summer dance workshops - Cinderella, Swan Lake and Frozen. There were twinkles in her eyes every time she danced. I knew then Goh Ballet was the right place that would nurture her passion, creativity and the desire to excel.The teachers at Goh Ballet were all top-notched. They are all very talented, patient, caring, creative, supportive and disciplined. Mikayla learned so much at Goh Ballet. We are grateful that she was given many opportunities to perform on various year-end shows, the Goh Ballet Nutcrackers and different competitions.Mikayla has danced in the Nutcracker for the last five years and she absolutely loved the experiences. They usually spent close to 3 months to practice and rehearse for the shows. It really is the best Nutcracker production in town! This year, because of COVID, they changed the format into a film production. They managed to complete the project within all the restrictions due to the COVID protocols. Kudos to all the teachers, the staff, the students and the production team. We are so excited to be part of a great show and we can't wait to see the final film!
Geoffrey Hainstock: We are so impressed with how Goh Ballet quickly transitioned our daughter's ballet classes to an on-line format during the pandemic. With all of use largely indoors during this time, the teachers were able to continue their instruction in an engaging and enjoyable manner... our daughter was so happy to "Zoom" into her classes every week! Thank you everyone at Goh Ballet for your support and kindness during this time!
gillian: 我的女儿 Gillian在 Crofton学校的 kindergarten 时就有 Goh Ballet 的老师每周一次来给这些女孩进行启蒙训练。Gillian从那时起爱上了芭蕾,所以到她9岁,她就要我们送她去本校学习。一年多来,她不但掌握了很多芭蕾技能,活泼了个性,优美了体态,而且还交了很多好朋友。我喜欢 Goh Ballet 的课程设计由浅入深,普及与提高兼顾。暑期强化班更可以让孩子得到全年不间断和系统性的训练。专业琴师的课堂伴奏使孩子于曼舞中得到全身心的音乐薰陶。授课教师专业又敬业,言教之余,尤重身教。考试之前,她们还会安排有针对性的特别辅导和模拟考,以帮助孩子精益求精,做好充分准备。Goh Ballet还会安排期中和期末的汇报演出,以及每年圣诞期间的《胡桃夹子》的演出。它使孩子们有机会与专业的舞者同台献演,并学以至用,服务社区。衷心感谢Goh Ballet对孩子们的悉心教导。
Jane Huang: It's been five years since my daughter learns ballet and Chinese dance in Goh Ballet. The teachers are very experienced and responsible. They not only can inspire the kids, but also can maintain a precise curriculum. I like the school culture which makes a very good balance with high standard for techniques and sparkles kids enthusiasm for dance.
mewling li: My daughter Ame...Y. Has been in goh ballet since age 4 ( for almost 4 years till now) . She had got much discipline and confidence in not only dancing but everyday life . She is never afraid of tackling challenges although she is now only 8. We love the friendships made in annual performances and routine classes. Goh teachers are professional and nicely strict ( good for us parents ha ha ) , such as Ms Phelp , Ms. Smith , Ms zhang , Ms pan .... we feel lucky to have all of them as our teachers in past years .... good to share ... Jessica
Wendy Wu: My daughter has learned so much about ballet at the Goh Ballet Academy. All the teachers are so kind, supportive, patient, caring, and hopeful in the students that there going to be an astounding dancer one day. The Goh Ballet Academy is surprisingly incredible. The dancers there are all so passionate about their talent in dance what new and thrilling activities the Goh Ballet Academy can offer to them. We never chose other academies other than Goh Ballet Academy. Goh Ballet Academy is always the best choice for dancers.
Qi Jin: 我女儿在goh ballet学习舞蹈已经有五年的时间。我觉得我们都很幸运找到了这样一所专业的舞蹈学校。曾经一度我们因为学校离家太远而转学去了另一所学校,但到了新学校之后才发现,无论从老师的专业性、责任心,还是从学校的规范和管理都无法和goh ballet 相比较。于是我们毅然转了回来。女儿如今学习芭蕾5年、中国舞2年。我亲眼见证了她的成长和进步,这都离不开老师对她专业的辅导和强烈的责任心。在goh ballet除了有更专业的老师,学校还为孩子们提供了丰富多彩的舞台表演机会。在温哥华我没有看到任何一家舞蹈学校的表演可以超越goh ballet。无论从舞台背景,或是从规模,还是从舞蹈编排,goh 无疑都是最好的。所以如果你的孩子深深的热爱舞蹈,goh ballet会是你最好的选择。
Joyce: I had a very disappointing experience at the ballet shop. One of the ladies was impatient, which made herself look unprofessional. I left without even asking about the programs in this academy.
Shawn Davidson: Unimpressed with the academy
Shreyas Patankar: It’s a great location and the studios are really nice. I really liked the adult ballet class - but the classes are quite a bit more difficult than the description on the website. Beginning 1 is definitely not for those with “little to no ballet experience”.
Nathaniel Craig: The Goh Ballet Academy is wonderful. I started my ballet training two months before my 16th birthday, with no previous dance training to speak of. After a year and a half of detailed instruction and hard work I'm currently in the first year of their senior program. I think that should speak for the superlative level of training the Goh Ballet Academy provides to it's students.
Miss T-Fab: Great school
Gunnit Randhawa: I so you at a school
Maxime Deslauriers: My child did not enjoy the experience. the teacher`s were inexperienced and all smelled awful. i don`t recommend this to anyone. Kappa

The Landing Dance Centre: what do users think?
Denise Mak: My daughter loves attending her ballet class every week! We love the beautiful studio and the teachers :)
Travis Chiu: Staff & dancing instructors are all very friendly, welcoming, & talented!
Tanya Pawlikewich: My teenaged daughter just tried her first ballet class at the Landing. Before going, she was very nervous as she hadn't taken dance classes anywhere since she was 6. She loved the class and can't wait for her second! Lovely teacher. Exciting environment. Friendly and quick responses to questions from staff.
Anson Li: The place for professional dancing... Even for kids. Parking can be tricky when there's a class switch. The studio is very nice and accommodating to student needs. There's a study room and kitchen for the times when your kids are waiting. All studios have cameras. There are male and female change rooms.
Kirsten Warneboldt: I enrolled my three year old daughter in the parent tot 6 week class, to see how she would like it. She has a gross motor delay (hypotonia) and isn’t able to jump yet. Her delay was no issue at all in Miss Molly’s class, it was a great experience and so good for her development. Even though my daughter tended to “do her own thing” in class, Miss Molly was always encouraging, and Kiki was always having fun. By the fifth class, she was practicing the exercises and we have a home practice now. She met new friends and gained confidence. No one took it too seriously, yet the kids all learned how to line up and follow instructions. I also loved the morning exercise and fun music and scarves! We will likely be back (after she finishes up soccer - always trying new things). One thing - the parking and studio gets crazy after 945. Luckily this was a 915 class :)
Eileen Li: Fast response and good follow up. Just went for a trial and teacher and environment seemed friendly.
Katy G: They offered us the free class for both my kids, and they both loved it! Signed up 1 day later.
N. S: I signed up for their free trial class as my daughter has never done any ballet before but I was really hesitant to enroll her in classes before finding out whether she liked it or not. This is probably the only place I could find that offered a trial class. My daughter LOVED it. I decided to stay and enroll her..the staff are amazing, kind and really patient. I love the fact that you can sit and watch them dance.
Isac Oliveira: My daughter loves her dancing classes! The staff is super friendly, the facilities are great, the teachers are kind, and Show Day is so beautiful and gets everybody so excited! How much the LDC staff loves and cares for what they do really shows.
Candy Tsang: I took my daughter to LDC in August 2022 for a trial pre-school (ballet and tap) class. Parents were not allowed into the studio/dance space so I appreciated that there were cameras in the studio and monitors for parents to wait and watch in the lobby area.#1 - the front desk staff were so kind and gentle to my 3yo daughter in getting her fitted for ballet and tap shoes.#2 - Ms. Emma and Ms. Trisha were wonderful and patient. They both had their magical ways in helping the new dancers get comfortable and listen. I was happy and surprised that my daughter was able to listen and follow along.#3 - Brenna and Prerna were so helpful over text and email to answer all my questions regarding enrollment.I'm excited to have my daughter join LDC and start her journey as a dancer!
julie huang: Our experience with the teachers and staff at the studio has been so amazing. The Landing genuinely cares about the students and it shows through with every interaction we’ve had with them! From fitting of shoes and uniform to classes and performance, they believe in helping the students be their best while being mindful of everyone’s learning styles.My daughter was very shy and hesitant to join the classes in the beginning. The teachers were encouraging but not forceful and I think that really helped her feel safe. We’re excited to continue our dance journey here at The Landing and can’t wait to see what kind of dancer they’ll shape my daughter to be!
E Y: The staff and instructors here are amazing, they are patient and friendly. We've enrolled our 3 year old for ballet and tap lessons and she adores her classmates and instructors. Sign up for a trial class to see for yourself, you will not be disappointed!
J Barnetson: Our favourite dance studio, we’ve tried a lot to find a good fit! The staff are great and the inside is wonderful! We look forward to our upcoming years!
Shannon Copeland: My daughters instructors were sweet - but I pulled my 3 year old child out of the studio after Trisha walked by her and told her out loud she wasn’t wearing her tights properly. I was completely put off by the lack of friendliness and professionalism. Not a good vibe, and not a place I wanted to have my daughter advance in as a dance community. I moved my daughter to Boogaloo and she is taking 3 yearly classes plus event classes and having a really good experience. This is a much friendlier all inclusive studio in the same vicinity with more dance offerings, and a way better vibe. I highly recommend Boogaloo!
Tatiana Parrott: I enrolled my children for trial classes for ballet and hip hop. I initially chose The Landing because it looked professional online and it was one of the only dance schools I could find that had trial classes without having to pay hundreds of dollars for a year (before knowing whether your kids even like it!). This is a smart business idea and I think they will only benefit from this set up. My experience so far has been really good. Everyone is super friendly and supportive and the teachers provide honest feedback about your child's participation in the class and whether that type of dance is a good fit etc. I would definitely recommend The Landing to anyone looking to experiment with dance or continue their dance journey...whatever stage they are at.
Xiong Shaw: We tried the trial class, the teacher was very kind and patient. Can't wait to join the long-term study here.
Brianna Van Riet: My daughter had her first contemporary class at The Landing this week and it was such a great experience. The staff are so sweet and helpful, her instructor was exceptionally warm and welcoming and she absolutely loved it! We’re excited for her to continue her training with such a great group of people.
Letty oey: We had our first trial class last week, my girl enjoyed a lot! The staff/ teachers are nice and the environment is good! I believe my daughter will enjoy the rest of the lessons.
JP Dunford: We had a great first experience at Landing Dance Centre. Teachers are helpful and kind, and the studio is beautiful. The front end staff are also very welcoming and easy to talk to.
Angela Liao: The staff here is wonderful, the facility is beautiful, there's parking on site, and multiple dance studios. My 4yo enjoys her ballet sessions here and we look forward to trying other dance genres here.
The Truth: This place has a high turnover because Brenna is a bully and narcissist. She doesn’t pay her staff on time or at all sometimes. Brenna justifies her bad behaviour by belittling everyone around her. She has been known to tell Asian parents that their kids will never be a great dancer due to genetics. Her inflated ego makes me laugh! It’s like dealing with a grown child having a permanent temper tantrum. Instead, take your kids and your money to a healthy learning environment. There are other really good dance studios nearby.
