Our most popular program! We invite students with talent, commitment, and good team spirit to participate in our Accelerated Dance Program. All students in this program must be enrolled in Ballet classes and be prepared to partake in exams. These students will compete in festivals held in and around Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Accelerated program is designed for the student who wants to be pushed and likes achieving set goals.
Our Ballet program follows the CDTA (Canadian Dance Teachers Association) program. The CDTA is a national teaching organization based out of Ontario. The CDTA offers a set curriculum for students of certain ages and levels and gives students the option to take exams and determine their skill level.
The benefit to parents in choosing a studio that is accredited with a national syllabus, is you are ensured your child is learning exercises from an experienced instructor. As well you can be safe in the knowledge that your child will be introduced to exercises in an age appropriate manner, allowing the safe development of strength and technique throughout their training.
Get your toes tapping! Tap is all about percussion, developing a sense of rhythm, and music interpretation. Emphasis is on strong footwork and identifying the names of individual steps. Nobody gets in trouble here for being too loud.
Is your child an energizer bunny? Do they love to hear pop music, twirl, jump and shimmy? Maybe you have a jazz dancer on your hands! Our jazz classes are an experience in fast, upbeat, energetic, heart pumping good times!
Bust some moves on the floor! Let your B-boyz or B-girlz bust a move in one of our high energy Hip Hop classes. We show them the fundamentals of hip hop and then turn them loose to see what they bring in terms of style and attitude.
