Dance Lesson Specialists
Collectively, the instructors of Night and Day Dance have been dancing, performing and teaching for over 60 years! Individually, we offer a wide range of skills and backgronds. Common to us all is the ability to teach absolutely anyone how to dance!
Our instructors teach almost exclusively from their home studios.
You can find us around BC and even in Alberta – in Vancouver, Victoria, New West, the Sunshine Coast, and Edmonton!
Current Vancouver locations include 2nd and Victoria as well as 16th and Victoria.
