building a community since 1985

Established in 1985, by original partners Pamela Quick-Rosa and Danielle Clifford, Harbour Dance Centre soon became the hub of Vancouver's dance scene. The original location was on West Hastings Street across from The Harbour Centre, hence where the name came from when they took over Prism Dance. Harbour Dance Centre made the move to Granville Street in 1989.

Whatever makes you move, our faculty will enrich your dance experience whether you’re an adult beginner or a seasoned professional. We are always happy to see new students excited for this untapped resource of fitness, fun and community. For our long time Harbour clients, we see a growth in skill and friendship. With our semi-professional dancers training hard to make this a career, we will forever be your biggest cheerleader to give you the tools needed to get started.

This could not have happened without Danielle Clifford and Pamela Rosa. Danielle is still a full time faculty member, but has passed her partnership to Moe Brody and Sabine Clifford. If you ever get to meet these ladies, you’ll see why it is a labour of love.
