Dedicated to Dancehall


Femme Gone Wild Dancehall, created with the guidance and support of top Dancehall dancers in Jamaica, is a Vancouver-based dancehall program with strong ties to Dancehall Dancers in Jamaica.  We have collaborated with or had our participants train with over 40 Dancehall Crews in Jamaica.  We respect the culture, and everything we do is in appreciation of and honouring Dancehall culture. 


We will explore the foundations of dancehall with an emphasis on the beauty of the bold, feisty and sexy side of dancehall through a combination of female and male grooves. 

Dancehall is a highly energetic, rhythmic style which originated in Jamaica and has Reggae roots. Learn the foundations of dancehall in this open-level, empowering dance program.  Get ready to fall further in love with dancehall culture, its grooves and the infectious beats of the dancehall riddims, all the while delving deeper into the history of this rich culture.

Our classes are conducted in a supportive and welcoming atmosphere, but you will also be pushed as a dancer.  Expect growth in terms of strength and vibrancy as a dancehall dancer.  All races, sexual orientations and body sizes are welcome.  Shaming and bulling will never be tolerated.

Along with weekly dancehall training Femme Gone Wild hosts Dancehall training retreats in Jamaica creating a stronger link between Canada and Jamaica.  We have introduced more Canadian dancehall dancers/enthusiasts to the authentic culture on the island of Jamaica where we visited some of the most beautiful spots on Earth, and trained intensely among the top crews and dancers in the Jamaican Dancehall Scene. 

Femme Gone Wild Dancehall does not personally profit financially from their programs/retreats: all profit returns to Jamaica and the dancers which mentor and inspire us.
