ABOUT US

WE ARE HERE TO INNOVATE & INSPIRE

Our classes, workshops and socials are designed to push you past your limits, whether you are an absolute beginner, intermediate or advanced dancer.

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.

 

 

LOCATION & INFO

Overlooking Barrington Street from the second floor is Studio 1 (1,400 square feet of open space with a 10-foot ceiling).  This space has only improved with age. Its classic, Victorian style is complemented by a modern touch that makes this studio a truly creative space. Also overlooking Barrington Street, but from the third floor, is  Studio 2 (700 square feet of open space with a 9-foot ceiling) which has been newly renovated into a modern style dance studio, with a touch Victorian....

 

Both studios are fully equipped with HVAC, mirrors, sound systems and numerous lighting options. Each studio has its own washroom, common area, change area and elevator. 

 

LATIN SOCIALS

Whether you're an absolute beginner or an advanced dancer, you will feel at home with us. Our Salsa & Bachata socials and events are designed to adapt to all levels and styles. A mixture of classic and modern salsa, traditional Bachata and Kizomba are each picked for their groove, upbeat, downbeat, and musicality to keep you dancing all night long.

 

 OUR OBJECTIVE & OUR MISSION

Our mission is to create a dance-based atmosphere that's welcoming to all. Our objective is to share, celebrate and immerse people of all ages in the beautiful Afro-Latino dance culture.
