The Studio

Vanleena Dance Academy is one of the largest dance schools on Vancouver’s beautiful North Shore. Vanleena’s 300+ students can choose from over 150 classes per week. Classes offered range from pre-school to vocational; recreational to performing and ages three to adult. Dance programs run from September to June followed by a variety of summer programs in July and August.

Vanleena students range from those taking classes once a week to those who take up to 22 classes per week. Students are encouraged to explore a range of dance disciplines, to take advantage of the many performing opportunities offered by the school and to become involved in the rich dance community that the school offers. ​

Vanleena is More Than Just a Dance School

Vanleena is a family business. The programming is crafted from many years of development and result based selection for the types of classes offered and the attention to each students needs as they ascend their young career in the performing arts.


To all my friends at Vanleena: thank you to every one of you for making me laugh, making me focused, making me want to be better and achieve, and for growing with me in dance and in life.

Vanleena has been a place about having fun and just loving to dance. It has been my home away from home for eight years. The people I have met at Vanleena are not just my peers and my teachers; they are all my friends. I am so lucky to have been molded by so many amazing dance teachers. Vanleena has taught me dedication, passion, and hard work.

I have been dancing at Vanleena Dance Academy for over five years and it has been a huge part of my life for that entire time. I fell completely and entirely in love with dance. I am now at Vanleena for up to 7 hours a week and every minute is amazing.
