~ Anita Huberman

"I cannot thank you enough for all you do - the energy you put into the studio leapt off the stage through all of those talented dancers. You and Amadea should be very proud of what you are doing for the arts scene in South Surrey/White Rock."
~ The Honourable Judge Rose Raven
"Congratulations on another full day of promoting the Arts in White Rock. Thank you to everyone for their hard work and commitment to showcasing the arts as a vital component of White Rock's quality of life!"
~ Elizabeth Keurvorst
Manager, Cultural Development, City of White Rock
"This studio has been in my life for over 10 years and it will always have a special place in my heart. XBa Centre of Dance is a welcoming environment that helps foster the love of dance no matter your skill level or ability. The teachers are inclusive, talented and passionate and the classes are the best I’ve ever taken. Many dancers have grown up with XBa and find themselves returning even in adulthood and I think that says a lot about the studio. Would recommend XBa to anyone! "
~ Elizabeth Tichelman
Associate Director of Housing, UNITI
"XBa is where it's at. As a dancer you learn to become an artist. As a person you gain a family. It's really a special place that I enjoy coming to each week to learn and unwind. Teachers are highly trained professionals who are actively working in the field. It's very refreshing."
~ Aimee K
"My daughter danced at XBa for 7 years and absolutely thrived in the nurturing, passionate, creative environment. Although she has now graduated and received her certificate in dance, it is the life long friendships and her connection to her XBa dance family that has been her greatest joy."
~ Joelle P
"At XBa dancers of all abilities are welcomed by the faculty, and other dancers. Their focus is on the art of dance and the performance rather than "who is the best?" No one is trying to better than anyone else, they encourage each other and celebrate each other. Dancers are encouraged to express their own creativity and the result is love of dance that is felt the moment you walk into the studio."
~ Christine D
"Rejoined the dance world as an adult this past season and XBa was instantly welcoming to me. The teachers are professional, and the studio is run very well. Looking forward to more years with XBa!"
"I practically grew up at XBa! I went from ages 11-18 and absolutely loved it (2004-2011) and I’ve also gone back as an adult when my schedule allows. XBa is so much more than a dance studio, and it’s a great one at that. Not only did I learn how to dance and express myself creatively, I also created life long friendships, healthy habits that I hold as an adult and memories that will last me a life time. As a teenager at the time and the struggles that can come with that, XBa was always a safe space for me that filled my cup with happiness and confidence at the end of each class. Words can’t express my love for this studio and the owners Nela and Amadea – they are absolutely amazing and to this day when I see them it’s like I’m saying hi to family. If you’re considering trying their classes or have a child that may be interested I highly recommend going! It’s a warm, inviting and inclusive space that can’t help but feel like a home away from home. To this day I love to dance and I thank XBa for everything it’s carved into my life."
