About the Dance Academy


Beginning in September 2014, the North Vancouver School District formed a partnership with Seymour Dance to offer a Dance Academy at Windsor Secondary School. The Dance Academy is parallel in design to existing academies, and provides for the participation of all students, male and female, regardless of their dance experience.

Goals and Highlights


  • Dance-Centered program aimed at developing the whole dancer consistent with the educational goals of leadership, fitness, active living and personal and social responsibility
  • Encompasses individual training for balance, flexibility and strength as well as endurance, agility, body awareness and coordination
  • Provides professional dance training in a wide variety of dance styles that will result in a well-rounded and diverse dance education
  • Uses a passion for dance as the basis for becoming lifelong learners
The program is held at Seymour Dance Studio and consists of the Dance Curriculum as set out by Seymour Dance and the Physical and Health Education curriculum established by the B.C. Ministry of Education. Students earn their grade level P.H.E. credit upon successful completion of the program.
