Welcome to
Shift Dance Academy!

After great success in our first eight years, Shift Dance Academy is now in it’s ninth year in our bright and beautiful facility!

With a faculty of passionate, dedicated, and accomplished instructors, we are proud to offer the North Shore a place where young dancers will be encouraged, challenged, inspired in every class!

It’s time to make the “shift!”


2020/2021 Registration is still OPEN!!

*To ensure the safety of our students and staff, class sizes are smaller due to Covid-19

What can you expect from Shift?

Watch some of videos from one of our previous recitals and competitions!


Our mission is to encourage, challenge, and inspire our students to be the best dancers they can be.

We believe in fostering a positive learning environment that instils confidence, creates friendships, and brings a sense of community beyond the dance studio.








In September 2012, Shift Dance Academy opened it’s doors to our brand new, fully  renovated studio for the first time.

Our goal has been to create a space that is bright, modern and comfortable all at the same time. We want our parents and dancers to enjoy their time at Shift as much as we do!

Shift is the story of a little girl with a big dream, and it’s a dream that came true!  Every day I wake up and am so thankful to be doing what I love doing surrounded by people who share the same passion and enthusiasm for dance that I do!  We have the best staff and we are working with the best kids! It’s more than I ever could have dreamed of!
