About

Calgary's only dance studio dedicated exclusively to Hip Hop & STREET DANCE

 
 

Our Story

It all started when...

Director Tara Wilson, a Hip Hop and contemporary dancer, teacher and choreographer decided to chase her dreams. United by their shared passion for Hip Hop and Streetdance, Vince Truong, a computer software developer and Gill Co, an HR rep in the oil and gas industry, joined Tara and her husband Peter Strickland. Together Tara, Peter, Vince and Gill  opened the doors of Pulse Studios – Calgary’s first, and only, dance studio dedicated exclusively to Hip Hop on January 24, 2011.

Pulse Studios brings together the finest artists in the Calgary Hip Hop community to share their gifts, along with artists from across the globe to deliver world-class education to the Calgary community.
