If your child has indicated they are interested in learning how to dance, our staff will help you find the most suitable program. For a full description of each discipline and how the styles vary, please refer to our class descriptions page . In order to place your child in the correct level, our staff will ask the following questions:
1. Does your child have any experience or are they new to dance?
2. Has your child participated in other activities which might help them with coordination?
3. Is your child looking for a more active or passive dance class? For example, jazz is more of a cardio workout where as ballet focuses more on grace and flexibility.
Generally students are placed according to their age and level of ability. For example, a 7 year old with no ballet experience would be better in a class of 6 and 7 year olds rather than a class of 7 to 9 year olds. We may suggest a private lesson for students who are older and at a beginner level. This class will provide them with one-on-one technical instruction before fitting them into an existing group of dancers. Private lessons are booked through the office from $90.00 plus HST per hour.
