Welcome to Vashon Center for Dance!

Vashon Center for Dance (VCD) is honored to have served the Vashon Community for more than 2 decades. 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. Our 2 spacious studios are in the historic Oddfellows Hall, which we refer to as the “Blue Heron Education Center”. We are currently working to update our facility to have better air circulation for when we are permitted to move indoors, depending on phase 3 or 4 restrictions and requirements around dance studios. In the meantime, all classes will be conducted online via Zoom.

VCA is proud to offer scholarships! Please click the link below for more information.

Floor-work and inversions are growing fast in the Seattle dance scene and are a blast to work on! Students have the option to show some phrase work on the outdoor stage at the end of the series.
