“ I am the shore and the ocean, awaiting myself on both sides.” ~ Dejan Stojanovic


At Shoreline Dance Academy our mission is to provide the highest quality dance education infused with passion, kindness, and integrity. Our students flourish within a knowledgeable environment that allows them to experience artistic curiosity, exploration and self-creation. Whether training for fun or a future career in the arts, Shoreline Dance Academy instills the self-confidence and critical thinking skills needed to get ahead in today’s world. We believe a dance school is so much more than lessons in movement, it’s trust, a home away from home, and above all it’s a family.

At Shoreline Dance Academy in beautiful Powell River, BC, we know that the early beginnings of a dancer’s training are just as important as the later years. Our faculty has the most current R.A.D certification in the new Pre-Primary and Primary syllabi which teaches musicality, rhythm, coordination, mime and many other important fundamentals needed to continue through their training for years to come.


Shoreline Dance Academy prides itself on hiring energetic dance educators that live to encourage, motivate and inspire.
Our faculty works hard to master current trends, take professional courses, and understand what makes each dancer progress within the studio.
We understand that trust is everything in a dance studio and want our Powell River dance families to know we have their best interests in mind now, and for years to come.


Powell River’s Shoreline Dance Academy is open for registration for the 2019-2020. All classes are subject to time changes until the final schedule is released in September.

Placement is based on age, however students will receive further assessment based on prior experience and ability.
