About

Established in 2014, DanZa Productions was created by Jamie Hartwell with the goal of offering fun, affordable, and top quality dance and fitness classes for people of all ages and fitness levels. It has since grown into to a new partnership between Jamie and co-owner Tereza Paraschivescu, offering not only Zumba but also specialty multi-ethnic dance classes, performances for special events, workshops and private lessons such as personalized wedding choreography.

Come dance with us today and see what the DanZa craze is all about!

Our two studios are conveniently located at 6468 Main Street and 8205 Ontario Street, in Vancouver BC.

A little bit more about our amateur dance crews: currently only offered in the Caribbean Dance style but with more styles to come, these select groups are a chance for beginners and intermediate dancers alike to be a part of an immersive experience where they can learn intricate choreography, teamwork and valuable dance techniques to improve (or kickstart) their craft. 

Run by Co-owner and Artistic Director Tereza Paraschivescu, these groups require an audition prior to joining. Please stay tuned for our Season 5 auditions coming up in Fall 2019.
