The Dance Academy of Prince Rupert (DAPR) believes in friendly, confident dance training that allows students to grow and learn in a comfortable and encouraging environment. Our long-term, knowledgeable staff has excellent training and a combined teaching experience of over fifty years! Having been a proud part of the community for over 30 years, The Academy recognizes the need to take an active role. Our students perform at various functions throughout the year both for entertainment and charitable purposes. Our students have participated in festivals and competitions all over the globe and always make a good showing. Our training can be taken as far away as Australia or stay as close to home as Terrace and you will always feel at home in a dance class. Our class work is internationally recognized and the exams offered are recognized world-wide. We pride ourselves on the many students who are now training or performing in "the business", as well as on the good work being acheived by our current students.
