BALLET- Ballet dance began in the late fifteenth century as a form of entertainment for the French court. Ballet, known for its grace and elegance, is the main foundation of dance. Our students will learn the fundamental basics of ballet with proper placement of the arms, alignment of the body and terminology while cultivating control, strength and grace of movement. Classes incorporate barre exercises, center work and allegro with an emphasis on proper alignment and turn-out (the outward rotation of the legs from the hip sockets.)

JAZZ-Students will begin by performing warm up exercises to stretch muscles in an effort to prevent injuries. Core strengthening exercises will be used for conditioning. Students will also learn across the floor steps and combinations that will increase in difficulty as the dancer progresses. Jazz dancers benefit from a strong knowledge of ballet technique therefore the jazz dance curriculum commonly includes ballet training.

TAP-Tap is an exciting form of dance in which dancers wear special shoes equipped with metal taps. Tap dancers use their feet like drums from metal plates that are attached to both the ball and the heel of the dancer’s shoe. These metal plates, when tapped against a hard surface, create a percussive sounds and aid students in learning about rhythm.

CONTEMPORARY- Contemporary dance was originally developed as dancers rejected the formality and rigid rules of classical ballet. Dance pioneers turned against the structured techniques, costumes and shoes of ballet, and favoured a more relaxed, free style of dancing. Dancers often danced in bare feet. Also, in opposition to ballet is the deliberate use of gravity. Whereas classical ballet dancers strive to be light and airy on their feet, modern dancers often use their body weight to enhance movement. Dancers also rejected the classical ballet stance of an upright, erect body, often opting instead for deliberate body contractions and falls to the floor while still keeping a strong centre of the body.

POINTE- There are many considerations before a student is ready to begin dancing in pointe shoes. Pointe work in Ballet is quite difficult and dancers may risk injury if they begin before they are ready. Once a dancer's muscles and bones have sufficiently developed, as well as their posture, strength & alignment, their instructor will then recommend partaking in Pointe class. Without proper posture, strength & alignment you can risk injury. Pointe work is dancing in specially constructed shoes which allow the dancer to rise up and dance on the tips of the toes.

Competitions provide dancers with opportunities beyond the four walls of our studio, to inspire, to motivate, to challenge, and to enrich one’s dance education, crucial for growth as a dancer. Enrolling your child in competitive dance provides performance opportunities in front of a judge and an audience at various dance competition venues, an integral part of a dancer’s future career. Competitive dance provides further opportunities to develop confidence in his/her dance skills outside of the studio. Students are accepted into this program through a yearly audition process.

*Dance Dreams reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment or student dropout. Any dance class or camp day missed will 
 not be made up nor reimbursed if school is open and programs running. 

For all classes, competitive or recreational, we kindly ask that dancers arrive no more than fifteen minutes prior to their scheduled class time. This is for the purposes of supervision, space, and safety. Our policy ensures that the studio will be open fifteen minutes prior to class start times for dancers and teachers to prepare for class; however, dance classes will commence promptly on schedule. We also ask that there be no lingering within the studio after dance classes have finished.
