About Our Dance School in Toronto

CHARACTER DANCE
Here we teach the technique of classical ballet and folk traditions of national cultures. This could be Polish, Hungarian, Russian, Romanian, Ukrainian, Spanish and others. Students will develop their expression through movement and gain an understanding of the colourful traditions and heritage.

JAZZ
Age: 6+ All levels
With its origins in American music developed from ragtime and blues, Jazz is one of the most popular and energetic forms of dance. Jazz, which is characterised by its syncopated rhythms and improvisation, offers dance students a challenging and demanding training.

TAP
With its roots in early American Jazz, Tap dancing is a fun, yet demanding, dance form for all ages. Known as music for your feet, tap is a lively way to exercise, develop a fine sense of rhythm and improve coordination.

HIP HOP
This is a high energy movement style with roots in Rap, Jazz and Street/Break Dancing.

MODERN
This is a highly emotional style of dance. Here, we explore its principles of fall and recovery, breath rhythms, expressiveness, and emotion. Also, we look at strong technical exercises of the Limon/Cunningham styles.

LYRICAL
Lyrical dance fuses modern dance, jazz, and ballet. This style of dance focuses on conveying the emotion of a song’s lyrics through dance. Intense emotional expression of the face and body are what tell the story that evolves along the lines of the song to which lyrical dance is performed.

MUSICAL THEATRE

Musical theatre, more commonly known as a “musical”, is a performance which combines singing, spoken dialogue, acting, and dancing. Although the genre overlaps with other theatrical forms such as opera, it differs by giving equal importance to the music as compared with the dialogue, movement and other elements.

ACRO DANCE

Acro dance is a style that combines classical dance technique and acrobatics. This intriguing form of dance dates back to the early 1900s vaudeville acts performed in United States and Canada. Acro is an especially challenging dance style that requires not only dance training, but also acrobatic skills.
