Our Dance Academy refines the individual talents of each dancer by balancing accredited technical dance training with performance training or enhanced technique training program for the dancer that wants to be a better dancer. We develop discipline and structure while promoting a positive self esteem and atmosphere. We work to improve endurance, flexibility, balance, strength and coordination. Our Dance Academy promotes healthy development, good posture as well as working on team building skills. Our aim is to develop well rounded dancers with an appreciation, education and enjoyment of the art of dance.
We cover ALL styles of dance! For the first few months, the dancers will really focus on getting their bodies moving again. We will work hard on technique and conditioning. Tap, musical theatre, hip hop, ballet, contemporary/modern and many more styles will get introduced monthly- the dancers will know with plenty of time to organize bringing other shoes etc
*note if your dancer does not have tap shoes, no problem I have extras!
Please bring a water bottle, dance shoes, notebook (for peak dance) and a pen or pencil.
