We are open 7 days a week with different classes each day. We are located in a heritage building with no lifts or elevators, so we are not wheelchair accessible.
Dance is for everyone. Young and old, beginner and expert, we crave to move. Movement brings a sense of oneness creating a deeper connection within ourselves. Harbour Dance Centre is a place to explore what dance is to the individual. Whether it’s the music, the movement, an artist, or a familiar memory; your body can create a stimulus for the mind that brings a sense of harmony. The result is a feeling of personal growth that can expand to all aspects of life. It’s not just a dance class, it's giving your body life, connectivity, and challenge.
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.
