About Us

VDC's Vision

VIEW Dance Challenge is Canada's Favourite Dance Competition. We are a platform for young dance artists to perform, learn and grow in a dynamic and invigorating environment.

Nine years ago, VIEW Dance Challenge was born with the goal of creating a dance experience like no other by building a platform for young, aspiring dancers to celebrate the art of dance. We have dedicated the past nine years to building, learning and improving our events in many ways. As challenges presented themselves over the past year, we sought out innovative and viable solutions for dancers from coast to coast. Our goal has always been and will always be to give dancers the opportunity to showcase their love for dance. 

We are a professional, unique and sought after International Dance Competition that proudly operates in nine Canadian provinces and three different countries. As our competition locations continue to grow globally, so has our VDC Family.  We could not be happier with our outstanding roster of event directors, staff and adjudicators that all share a common goal of dedicating their skills to the dance community.

As owners and founders, we have had the honour and privilege of SEEING dancers grow as artists on the VDC stage. We BELIEVE in providing our community of dancers with a safe space to perform, compete, learn and grow together! We BELIEVE that we can make a difference in creating a strong foundation for dancers to ACHIEVE their goals and dreams.

We take pride in delivering high quality events and providing the ultimate dance competition experience for all dancers, studio owners, teachers, choreographers and families. We strive to go above and beyond by hand selecting the best suited venues for performance needs, recruiting extraordinary and personable staff members and curating a panel of accomplished and sought after international adjudicators.

At VDC, dancers gain more than just a performance opportunity; they are provided with the staging, lighting and atmosphere to showcase their talents and receive constructive criticism and thoughtful guidance from our established panel of adjudicators. Our commitment to excellence assures a timely and organized dance competition, and of course, an unforgettable experience from the moment you step foot in the door.

As professional dancers, producers, passionate adjudicators, international choreographers and proud BFA holders majoring in Dance, we are committed to bringing you the most remarkable, reputable and rewarding Canadian Dance Competition. Our love and passion for the art of dance paired with our expertise and years of experience ensures that your time at VIEW Dance Challenge exceeds all of your dance competition expectations!
