Dance Classes For All Ages And Levels 

The perfect level for those who enjoy dance and want to explore their creative expression in a fun atmosphere.

Each class includes a warm-up consisting of exercises to help dancers improve flexibility, strength, balance and agility. Students will also learn progressions across the floor and various steps to be used in their performance routine. In the last third of the class students will learn innovative combinations and will later learn a formatted routine that will perform in the year-end show held at the Living Arts Center in Mississauga. Students rehearse weekly for their chance to perform on a world-class stage. Our recreational program introduces students to a variety of different mainstream dance styles such as Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet, Tap, Contemporary, Acrobatics & Tumbling. This program provides a great way to get fit and have fun!
