The weekly commitment from September to May consists of a minimum 2 hours of dance for Hip Hop competitors and 3 hours for all other styles. Students participate in 2-3 competitions within Simcoe County and the Greater Toronto Area and the occasional community performance. Students will be required to train throughout the spring and summer and attend an in studio competitive dance intensive ranging from 3-5 days in length. At this intensive students train in all dance styles are offered spots in style(s) in which they excel.


EXAMINATION CLASSES

Ballet exams are offered through the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). Jazz and Tap exams are offered through Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers (ADAPT). Interested students should speak with Miss Colleen regarding exam requirements.


DANCE ABILITY MOVEMENT PROGRAM

The Dance Workshop is proud to be a host studio for The Dance Ability Movement Program. With a focus on dancing and the arts, Occupational Therapists and Dance Instructors, Mallory and Jade Ryan, have created The Dance Ability Movement as a way to develop opportunities for individuals with additional needs to access community leisure activities. Inclusive dance classes provide each dancer with a 1:1 dance buddy, a volunteer dancer, who adapts the class to the right level of challenge and provides encouragement, friendship, and mentoring throughout the year. We believe each child is unique, every child deserves equal opportunities and all children have the ability to dance!
