Performances

June Performances

We celebrate our 46th annual “Evening of Dance” this season. Started by founder Flora Pigeau in 1976, our Show allows our dancers to perform to sold out audiences at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby. 

Our “Evening of Dance” occurs over three evenings. Each performance offers exciting and award-winning choreography from our faculty and guest choreographers. We are proud to offer professional, organized, and impressive Shows that delight audiences. 

Competitions

Our Academy’s Competitive Program participates in various local competitions. We are proud to have both competitors receive excellent results including:

  • high marks, awards & trophies
  • scholarship & cash awards
  • BC Provincial Dance Representatives stage since 1987
  • Top awards at Youth American Grand Prix including New York Finals invitations
  • Participation in the prestigious Genee International Ballet Competition (now called Margot Fonteyn International Ballet Competition)

    For current students, please visit the Student Handbook & Academy Calendar for further details.

Examinations

While the Central Dance Academy incorporates many styles of dance, we specialize in the world renowned Royal Academy of Dance ballet syllabi. Our professional membership and training ensures students receive the best training in classical ballet.

The RAD offers examinations as assessments for students to progress and achieve. We are proud to have many successful Exam candidates each year from Primary to Solo Seal, with a very high percentage receiving the highest honour of Distinction.

Special Opportunities

Throughout the year, the Academy often performs at a variety of different events including community events & parades, local schools, private events, weddings, and Senior Care Facilities.

We also participate in a performance of “The Nutcracker”, in partnership with the Surrey Orchestra. We hope to bring back this performance in 2021, if Covid-19 restrictions permit.
