Hip Hop & Acro Combination Class
Perfect for new and returning dancers, this class if full of fun and trendy choreography, while building strength and flexibility for acrobatic dance and tumbling. New choreography will be covered each week. Dancers will work at their own pace through the ADTA syllabus. We work in trick families, so while a beginner dancer may be working on their headstand against the wall, another dancer may be working on backhand spring drills on their mat in centre.

Please note: all our classes are gender neutral. Students are given lots of ideas on how to express themselves and encouraged to do so freely within the parameters of each exercise in our syllabus.

Mat Monkeys
Perfect for preschoolers, they will love moving about our large space and using our specialized equipment to teach kids spacial awareness, following directions, waiting your turn while developing motor skills and enhancing cognitive development. Experienced teachers captivate the attention of our youngest dancers with our tried and true methods of engagement and our fabulous curriculum that's perfect for curious minds (and quickly changing interests!)

Caregivers are permitted in the room, but must actively participate with the child that is dancing in order to help them learn to follow the class. We learn by example and when caregivers are sitting, children are distracted and torn, they’re not sure if they should follow the class or hang out with you. As soon as your child is able to participate without assistance, we ask that caregivers drop off and pick up at the end of class. Thanks so much for your cooperation with this policy.

Discover Dance
Fabulous fun on a Saturday morning (and a great way to get some of that energy out!)

Dancers will learn basic dance skills and terminology, while learning how to develop and use their muscles to build a strong foundation. They will learn how to use their feet and the floor, while improving posture, building self-confidence and practicing self-expression in a safe environment. Our dancers also thrive when it’s time to head to schooll because they have already developed the ability to follow direction, wait their turn, and work together with their classmates.
Classes are fun, upbeat, and staff are wonderful at helping young children feel comfortable and participate in class.
