Preschool Dance Classes (Age 3 & 4)

Nursery Age

Our preschool dance classes begin at just 3 years old. We teach using a combination of music and imagination taking little ones on magical adventures where movement to music forms the foundations of dance technique. Students develop motor and loco-motor skills and learn the basic elements of movement, rhythm and musicality, as well as the beginnings of ballet, tap, jazz and acro skills. Dancing at a young age is great for physical development, self-expression, creativity, and imagination. It’s also great fun!

Dance classes for children in Primary 1

(Age 4-6)

Dancing is a great way for kids to stay active, meet new friends, stimulate creativity and have fun. For kids aged 4, 5 & 6 years we offer Dance Acro, as well as our signature combination dance class “Ballet & Tap” and “Jazz & Contemporary”. Focus is on developing elementary skills in technique, vocabulary and choreography across each dance genre. Students benefit from the different skills picked up in each style and the variety is perfect for the shorter attention span of children in this age group.
