Recreational Classes Ages 6+

Designed for ages 6 and up, no experience is required to join our Recreational Program. Students will have the choice to attend classes 1 – 2 times per week in varying styles of dance including ballet, jazz, and modern. Whether your child is new to dance or continues to enjoy the physical fitness and fun of a dance class, our Recreational Program allows them to explore movement and music while introducing the fundamentals of their chosen dance discipline. Dance provides students the opportunity to develop poise, self-discipline, musicality, improve teamwork skills and build confidence in a safe and nurturing environment. This program is also a great complement to students who participate in other activities or sports looking to enhance their posture, balance and flexibility. Live music accompanies all ballet classes in this program.

Recreation Ballet

A perfect weekly class or introduction to ballet, Recreational Ballet will concentrate on ballet structure through beginning technique, port de bras, centre practice, allegro (jumping) and the development of a dance vocabulary – all in a relaxed, enjoyable and accessible environment for the recreational dancer. A professional pianist accompanies each class. Recreational Ballet may be taken as a stand-alone or in addition to other recreational classes such as jazz.

*Students registered in this program are eligible to audition to perform in Alberta Ballet’s Nutcracker and other productions.

A production fee is included in your registration and is non refundable. Participation in the Year End Performance is not mandatory but strongly recommended. This fee includes all wardrobe and costume charges, theatre rental fees, videographer and photographer, and any other costs associated with the Year End Performance.

Recreational Jazz

Jazz is a fun, invigorating class set to contemporary music. Explore the world of jazz dance while developing style, versatility and increased flexibility. You can choose to take Recreational Jazz as a complement to your ballet or as a stand-alone program.

All Recreational ballet programs qualify for our monthly payment plan. A 20% deposit is required to participate.
