Welcome to Haliente Creative Studio!
Dance is not a competition, it’s a passion
Haliente Creative Studio's vision is to offer a space that allows dancers to grow. We have been located in downtown Halifax since 2012, originally under the name Salsa Dura. Our goal, then, now and always is to provide dancers of all ages, levels and backgrounds a place for creative self-expression, exercise, education and social interaction. We offer a variety of classes, social dances, events and dance programs with price options for all levels of interest.
Come dance with us at our next social or event!
OUR CREATIVE STUDIO
Our creative studio space is perfect for movement-based activities such as dance, rehearsals, classes, workshops, special events, and performances. Haliente Creative Studio is also open to arts-based (professional and amateur) activities such as photography, theatre, and art exhibits.
