Teen Program

Ages 13 to 18 (Grades 8 to 12)

With the introduction of a more robust afterschool program, our Teen Program offers dancers age 13 to 18 a more flexible schedule to allow time for other activities outside of school and dance.

Our programs are ballet-based in order to develop the strength and understanding necessary for long-term success in Arts Umbrella’s dance programming.

Experienced dance teachers and accomplished dance artists make up our wonderful faculty, who guide dancers throughout the year. Ballet and Modern classes are accompanied by sought after dance accompanists to create a quality program for dancers.

Arts Umbrella Dance classes focus on the dancers as a whole person, emphasizing physical, emotional, and intellectual development throughout the year. We celebrate the achievements of our dancers at the end of the school year with our year end Recital performed at the Vancouver Playhouse in June.
