In 1968, Marg and Don Evans bought an existing dancewear and stage supply business on West Broadway and renamed it “The Dance Shop”. At the time, Marg and Don had three small children and quickly learned how to balance family life with the demands of owning a business. The Dance Shop flourished under the direction of the Evans family and expanded to multiple locations across the lower mainland. When Don and Marg decided to retire in 2010, they passed on the management and operations of their store to their son, David.

Today, The Dance Shop operates out of one location on West Broadway, and continues to be a family owned and operated business. The Evans family relies on their dedicated staff that embodies The Dance Shop’s legacy of warm and friendly customer service. Our staff is made up of members of the dance and theatre community, who bring their knowledge and experience to the store. The Dance Shop has been serving the dance and theatre community throughout all of B.C. for over 48 years and continues to support local dance and theatre through sponsorships and donations.
