Pre-Dance

PreDance is for our youngest dancers – ages from toilet trained through Kindergarten.
Boys and girls alike enjoy this class where they learn dance technique disguised as dinosaurs and princesses. Through the narrative of dance, students are given the tools and encouragement to explore their world in a new way, both in relationship to their physical space and the people around them. Movement and music are used by the teacher to engage the students’ imagination, enthusiasm and energy.

Ballet

Classical Ballet Technique is taught in our levelled, instructional program. Students progress year after year, increasing stability, mobility and strength while developing musicality and dance quality. In-class practice with the focus of proper body alignment and turnout will nurture dancers into performers.

Jazz

Nurturing growth of athletic artists, Jazz technique is a highly physical dance style where students enjoy a broad spectrum of movement.

Tap

The art of rhythm is completely audible in tap class where you make music with your feet. Students are challenged to master timing, refined movement and quick reflexes. Tap is taught to a large variety of music: from upbeat music, to slow music, or in some cases dancers are challenged to make the beat with their feet without any accompanying music.

  • Primary Tap class is combined with the Primary Jazz class and may be found under Jazz
  • If you have interest in a tap class at the adult or senior level, please contact the office. We will open a class when we have 4 names on the list.

Lyrical

Lyrical dance combines Jazz and Ballet technique and focuses on the expression of words/lyrics through the music and movement of the body. Dancers are encouraged to develop their own connection with the lyrics and continue to advance their musicality as they express themselves through the choreography.

Hip Hop

Hip Hop is a fun and energetic style! Influenced by the evolution of Hip Hop music and culture, the dance form is about the student’s energy focus being directed to values like originality, creativity, respect, and community. Hip Hop combines the elements of various dance styles and is constantly evolving, but the core tenants remain the same. Instructors will provide students with age-appropriate expectations, as well as tasteful costumes/music choices.
