Dance Classes

Acro


Acro classes offer Dancers the chance to hone their strength and flexibility while incorporating dance movements. Beginning with Acro fundamentals such as somersaults and cartwheels, Dancers safely build the skills they need to achieve more complex movements, such as forearm stands, walkovers,and side aerials. We use the Acrobatic Arts Syllabus to teach the skills, but use dance to transition through their movements. This all leads to a fantastic performance on stage at our year end recital.

Ballet


In this structured dance class children are introduced to slow, graceful dance steps, and will be encouraged to express their emotions through movement. Performers enrolled in Ballet dance classes will develop strength, flexibility, balance and agility by mastering age appropriate Ballet technique, and exploring improvisation and creative movement. Taught with classical music and French terminology, Ballet is known as the building block for all styles of dance!

Dance Theatre


Singing, dancing, and acting all take centre stage in our Dance Theatre classes. Watch your child build their confidence as a “Triple Threat” performer by honing their musical abilities and combining them with theatrical movement in this combination dance class! Performers will get to act, sing, dance and expand their imaginations through guided exercises and improvisation. This all leads into a year end performance of a full Musical Theatre production!

Hip Hop


This high-energy class offers Dancers a way to explore age-appropriate urban movements set to popular music. Body isolations, quick footwork, and syncopated rhythms are emphasized. Hip-hop dancers often freestyle, moving to the beat of the music with creative and energetic steps.Whether it's the dynamic footwork of breaking or the rhythmic isolations of popping, hip-hop dance is all about individual style, creativity, and having fun on the dance floor.

Jazz


Imagine learning steps that are both graceful and snappy, set to lively music that makes you want to move. If you're into having fun, moving to awesome tunes, and adding a touch of style to your dance, a jazz class is where it's at! Jazz dance is not just about technique; it's also about feeling the music and letting your personality shine on the dance floor. It's a great way to have fun, stay active, and become a smooth dancer! With an influence of both tradition and trends, our Jazz classes incorporate the latest styles, offering our Dancers a well-rounded experience using Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers syllabus. Technique and self-expression grow step by step as the Dancers groove through each class to upbeat music.

Tap


Tap dance classes are a vibrant and engaging way for children to explore the world of rhythm and movement.

Students learn to use their feet like drums, creating rhythmic patterns and beats, which aids in developing musicality and timing.
