Classical ballet is the most internationally recognized form of dance and the foundation of all other types of dancing. The benefits of studying ballet are numerous - some of which are grace, poise, coordination, fluidity, strength and musicality. Only by studying ballet can the dancer gain total knowledge of his/her body, technical ability and strength. It is most important for students who are serious about their dancing to take ballet lessons. Dancers wishing to dance en pointe (on pointe shoes) may only do so with the teacher's consent. Examinations are taken with C.S.C./C.D.T.A.. Classes are available for ages 4+.



Tap is a lively form of dance, unique in that students study the quality of sound as well as the quality of movement. The variety of rhythms and styles make tap dancing a versatile performance medium. Examinations are taken with C.D.T.A. Classes are available for ages 3+.



Jazz dancing is usually exciting and fast-paced, most often involving current styles and music. The class consists of warming-up/stretching and combinations of jazz movements. Students develop coordination, rhythm, posture, strength and creativity. Examinations are taken with C.D.T.A.. Classes are available for ages 4+.



Acrobatic dance is a unique and disciplined form of movement with some similarities to floor gymnastics. The body develops strength, flexibility, coordination, balance and control. In performance, acrobatic "tricks" are combined with dance steps in a variety of themes and styles. Examinations are taken with C.D.T.A. Classes are available for ages 6+.




Similar to Acrobatics but designed for 3-6 year olds, little ones will have fun exploring stretching, various rolls, crab-bridges, bridges, cartwheels, handstands and more, along with props (ie. hula hoops & ribbons) and fun dance steps! 



Have fun learning the current, popular dance style which is at the forefront of the media. Students gain rhythm, coordination, aerobic exercise and confidence. Classes are available for ages 4+.



Lyrical dance is a blend of ballet and jazz, illustrating the lyrics with emotional movement.  A graceful, beautiful outlet which becomes a favourite for all! Classes are available for ages 8+.




This is a class designed especially for three year-olds. The class consists of creative movement, dance basics, body awareness, exercise and music appreciation. It is a fun class and an outlet for young, creative energy.




Now even 2 year-olds can dance! A positive atmosphere for the littlest students to try the beginnings of dance.



We have Wednesday evening non-recital Adult Ballet classes! Come join the fun in a non-intimidating atmosphere!
