Private lessons and group classes, master classes, a year-end dance recital and, for competition classes, dance festivals provide our dancers with exceptional training and performance opportunities.
Place des Arts’ caring and highly skilled teachers make dance fun and challenging and take pride in making sure all students receive personalized attention.
Classes take place at Place des Arts and off-site in satellite studios at the Evergreen Cultural Centre, 1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam.
Registration for fall session classes may be done online, by phone at 604.664.1636 or in person at Place des Arts, 1120 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam.
Registration for all September – June classes and private lessons must be done by phone at 604.664.1636 or in person at Place des Arts, 1120 Brunette Avenue.
These dance classes begin in September and run until June. Late registration is accepted at the discretion of the teacher and where space is available. As there are many technical elements to learn, a student will usually spend more than one year in each level. Placement is based on teacher recommendation.
Dance classes that run during the fall, winter and spring sessions introduce beginners to dance while preparing them for entry into the September – June program.
Place des Arts hosts exciting summer dance programs for youth and adults. Summer dance is a great way to spend some time in the summer dancing, learning, making new friends and having a great time!
