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 or modern.

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

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 modern class, or as a stand-alone.

Recreational Modern

Modern is a creative blend between the structure of ballet and the stylized jazz genre. Dancers will explore concepts of swing, weight, use of torso and floor work in a creative setting to an eclectic assortment of music. You can choose to take Recreational modern as a complement to your ballet or jazz class, or as a stand-alone.

Full year classes are currently in progress. Please contact the school directly if you wish to join into programming before September.
