Recreational classes are available to help each student, regardless of age, ethnicity, sex, gender, physical or cognitive abilities to reach their fullest potential by enhancing their interest, talents and enthusiasm across all dance disciplines. Our pedagogical approach emphasizes dance and physical literacy as aspects of holistic human development. Know matter how old you are, it’s never too late to start dance. All students are placed in a class that suits both their age and skill set(ability). Students are assessed regularly to make certain they are placed in classes that are best suited for them.
Fun & Supportive Dance Studio
We understand that students dance for different reasons, and we make every effort to accommodate every one of our dancers individually. A student dancing for pure enjoyment, 30 mins a week deserves as much dedication, and technical training from our instructors as the more career-oriented dancer. Everyone has their own personal goals as a dancer; we are dedicated to helping you reach yours. We believe that nothing is an obstacle in life, unless you allow it to be.
