Our Mission & Philosophies

Our Mission

  •  To provide a centre of excellence in classical ballet, contemporary dance and musical theatre.
  • To offer superior training by former professional dancers in a nurturing, disciplined and family-oriented environment.
  • To expand the community awareness of the enjoyment and benefits of dance.

Our Philosophies

  • We believe that teachers professionally accomplished in their art provide students with the best chance of success.
  • We believe in classical training that not only teaches children how to dance, but also develops etiquette, discipline, graciousness and respectability; traits that will aid students in all aspects of their lives.
  • We believe that children excel when encouraged in a nurturing and disciplined environment.
  • We believe that students need to learn how to dance before they learn what to dance.  Our training concentrates on advancing technique throughout the school year.  As a result, our students excel at learning complex choreography quickly and easily.
  • We believe that children should be children. Costumes and music are always be age-appropriate at our Academy.
  • We believe that children are naturally beautiful. Young children do not need make-up and no child needs false eyelashes.
  • We believe in reducing waste and expense wherever possible.  By maintaining a full costume wardrobe, we ensure that families never pay fees for costumes and that costumes are re-used rather than discarded after use.
  • We believe that every child should leave their class with a smile on their face.
