WE HAVE WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR
The point of participating in Dance Arts is to give children a chance to grow and gain in confidence. We are so pleased to offer our students a chance to showcase their talents in an annual recital. They get the opportunity to wear beautiful custom made costumes and dance in a professional theater. It is so rewarding year after year to watch our students learn new routines, gain confidence and experience the life of a performer. The students are accompanied by professional lighting and sound. Every Dancer feels like a star up on the performance stage. We also offer many other performance opportunities throughout the year for our ADA families such as; Santa Claus Parade, Raptors and Toronto Argos, etc.. These opportunities are completely optional and are offered if you would like the extra performance experiences. We are proud to give our students many different experiences in the performing arts.
CURRICULUM & AWARENESS
We are thrilled to be able to offer our students lessons and exams based on R.A.D., (Royal Academy of Dancing) A.D.A.P.T (Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers) and Acrobatic Arts syllabus from our fully qualified teachers. Examinations are conducted by professional teachers sent to our studio to test our dancers’ skills and reward them with certificates upon successful presentation of the required work based on the requirements of each level within the syllabi. These certifications are recognized both nationally and internationally respectively. We are also attentive to our parents concerns of how children are being pushed and growing-up too quickly in today’s society. In all our classes we use current and popular music but we are selective and cautious that it is ALWAYS appropriate. We feel the same when choosing children’s costumes. We are totally conscious of today’s music industries suggestive movements and we pride ourselves on always making sure our dancers are AGE APPROPRIATE. We are proud of our fun and dynamic routines that always stay current and appropriate.
