A Chat with Evergreen Dance Academy
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer the widest selection of dance classes in Vancouver. We have two beautiful studios at our Fisher’s Landing Market Place location. Our mission is to provide the best dance instruction in a supportive learning environment for all ages and abilities.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
We are constantly bringing in new students so it is important that they do not feel intimidated to try a class that has more experienced students in it. I always make sure the new student gets lots of individualized attention and encouragement. They always leave feeling very excited to come back!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always loved ballet and have danced since I was 6 years old. When I started teaching at my second dance studio 15 years ago, I saw so many ways I could improve . . . [how they did] business. I was a stay at home mom at the time, but when my youngest went off to school, I opened my dance studio.
What do you love most about your job?
I love teaching! From the youngest ones to the adults, it’s all rewarding. Seeing a student’s eyes light up when something has just clicked or they have finally perfected a step is priceless!
