Where can I buy dance gear?

Dance gear is not necessary, athletic clothing will work for all classes. If desired, you find dance gear here: 

  • The Dance Shop, 1089 W Broadway
  • Duck Feet, 1079 Marine Dr, North Vancouver


Do I need to be a professional dancer to take the ballet and contemporary classes?

Not at all! Our classes are open to students completely new to dance or have previous dance experience. 


For ballet and contemporary classes, how do I decide which level to register for?

When deciding on a level, we recommend students consider their previous dance experience and what they are hoping to get out of a class. 

Our beginner classes are intended for students with no dance experience or for students who have experience but are looking for a refresher on the basics. Our intermediate classes are intended for students with some dance experience as an adult or child and want more of a challenge.


Are the classes progressive?

Yes, the series are progressive. There will be a natural progression as the class learns and improves technique but no final showing or piece of choreography to learn. Students are encouraged to ask questions or have the instructor repeat exercises if needed.


Are the yoga classes all-levels?

Yes. No experience is required and modifications will be available to anyone who needs them.


Do you offer drop-ins?

Yes! All of our yoga classes are available on a drop-in basis.


What is your refund policy?

We do not issue refunds after the date of the third class (only applicable for classes purchased as a series).


Are there showers available?

Yes, we have newly renovated, private shower and changeroom facilities available for your use.


Is there an age limit?

Our adult classes are open to students aged 18 and up.


What if I can’t attend every class? 

We encourage students to attend all classes to the best of their abilities. Currently, we are not offering make-up classes.


What should I do if a class is full?

Once a class is full, a waitlist will be made available.


I am waitlisted. When will I know if a spot becomes available?

We will contact those waitlisted via email as soon as a spot opens up. If those waitlisted have not heard from us by the date of the third class, they can assume the class is full. Follow @balletbc or sign up to be added to our mailing list to be the first to know about future classes.


Will Ballet BC merchandise be available for purchase?

Yes! A range of coveted Ballet BC merch and apparel will be available for purchase on site at Ballet BC.
