Harbour Dance Studio is good for hip hop and break....one of my best guy friends goes there and then to some other places around vancouver during the week that play good music to break and what not. I can ask him, but i do know it\'s around vancouver tho
What kind of dancing are you into?
Try your local Richmond/Surrey highschool for nightschool dance classes. Alot of Vancouver highschools offer these programs for cheap. When I lived downtown before, I used to go to the \"Roundhouse Community Centre\" on Pacific Blvd and they have dance classes there. Better yet just hit up any clubs on the weekends and watch people dance to get dance moves! I\'d teach you myself but I\'m not that fabulous (modest me).
I have tons of friends who do dance at Dance Co. It\'s supposed to be really good! They do hip hop, tap, ballet and jazz there. I\'ll get more info from them tomorrow.
yea, harbour\'s a good choice.. it\'s mostly drop in and the price range is 12 to 15... the teachers are usually local semi professional dancers or teach at other more curriculum based dance schools.. levels range from early beginners to former professional dancers.. it\'s a good place to go if you used to serious about dancing but have stopped for awhile... it\'s location is kinda hidden.. but it\'s right next to the big gigantic Tom Lee Music store downtown.. there\'s a small door entry and you have to walk up 3 flights of stairs

in richmond, there\'s also \"The Studio\".. i haven\'t danced there, but a few of friends go there sometimes.. it\'s along alderbridge.. across from the tim horton\'s and the big furniture stores
ok thanks guys!...yah i wana try all types but im mostly hip hopish...and i checked out harbour site it seems more drop in like u said then a serious level?..like do these places actually go around and compete?...
I go to Encore Dance Academy in Coquitlam.love it there.
You can take 5 lesson classes or September-June classes.
They have classes for all ages.

okok there\'s also richmond academy of dance.. mostly known for ballet.. but their hip hop group is quite strong as well.. (i used to compete against them) and they just renovated the whole school like 2 years ago.. the studio\'s really nice now
so there.. good luck =D
yeah my sister goes to Richmond Academy of Dance and it\'s good!! they are actualy serious about dancing, so if you are serious..you should go there, they are pretty strict.
If you go to university, check out what they have for clubs and such. UBC has an awesome hip hop class, tuesday @ 5-6:30 but i don\'t know if they are open for the general public. And you pay for the whole term, so i don\'t know that fits you...but it\'s definitely cheap though compared to otherplaces.
Well, the Dance Co. site turns out to be all salsa and that. But, it\'s actually hip hop. :S
You can also do drop ins at UBC or you can opt for the whole term/year. i don\'t think they do competitions, although i think they have a show at the end of the year. Harbour is a really good drop in centre for all types of dance. But if you\'re looking to do competitions, then you\'d probably have to go to a dance school (and join their competitive classes). Or what you can do is, get privates with an instructor to learn a dance (not just a combo) and register yourself into the competitions.
ok ok thanks guyss!..ill be sure to check them all out ..i kno bout the richmond one since i live here but it seemed smaller compared to others like dance co.?..i luked up danc co on the net and they have some amazing instructors..as for harbour it seems like a drop in thingy only...
dance co mentions that they do compete but there lessons are frum sept-may...do u kno if they travel to seatlle and cali during these times or after in the summer?...just cuz im in college duno how i wud work around that..thanks!
They don\'t travel at all, from what I know. My friends tell me that the competitions are alawys in Richmond, so that\'s close to here.
go to dream dance studios. They have just newly opened in late september 2005, but i have been dancing with the teacher for about 2 years now. Some people ahve been with her longer. Shes awesome. competitions are great, my group got first place for the last one i competed in. Dances are original. They offer all types of dance. I do hip hop. They also have jazz, ballet, interpretive, bboying and they may have a few other. There are also tech classes so in additional to being in a regular dance class there is another class to better your skills. and its like half the price of the regular dance class.
