Welcome to Vashon Center for Dance!

Vashon Center for Dance (VCD) is honored to have served the Vashon Community for more than 2 decades. Our 2 spacious studios are in the historic Oddfellows Hall, which we refer to as the “Blue Heron Education Center”. We use sprung floors, regulation-height barres, live accompaniment and recorded music. As of Fall 2017, we conducted 32 classes per week for 250 students. We also provide 3 full-scale productions annually in the beautiful Katherine L. White Hall, including a traditional Vashon favorite, The Nutcracker.

Whether students are pursuing a career in dance, or study dance because they love it, all students are provided the same excellence in training in a supportive, challenging, and nurturing environment. Confidence, dedication, self-motivation and creative thinking are qualities and skills we seek to instill our students – qualities that will serve them well in all aspects of their lives.

Thank you for choosing Vashon Center for Dance. We look forward to dancing with you.

Summer classes are open for registration now.

We are excited to welcome the lovely Amanda Morgan, PNB dancer and choreographer, to the Blue Heron studios for master classes in Advanced Ballet, Improvisation, and Ballet Pointe Variations.  Ms Morgan was recently recognized by Dance Magazine and Dance Spirit Magazine as a dancer who should be "on your radar" and as an artist who is "already making her mark".  This is a great opportunity to meet and take class from a local girl (from Tacoma) making big moves in the dance world.
