Every year, QBSD students have the opportunity to perform in two different shows… one at Christmas and one in June. Our Christmas shows are typically more relaxed and designed so that students can watch their classmates on stage as part of the audience! Year-end shows are more elaborate and in June 2016, we staged our show at the Vancouver Island University Malaspina Theatre.

Take a look at some clips from the June 2016 show!


Each spring, there are opportunities for QBSD dance students to participate in regional dance festivals and workshops. Students may choose to learn solo, duet, or small group routines in the dance discipline(s) of their choice and enter one or more regional dance festivals. Extra instruction and all rehearsals take place outside of regular class time, requiring students to be self-motivated and disciplined. Participation is voluntary.

Students may also choose to engage a QBSD dance instructor for one-on-one or small group instruction and development of choreography in preparation for festival participation. In addition, QBSD may also enter a large ensemble in one or more festivals and regional performances.
