Recreational Youth Classes Ages 6-11

Designed for ages 6 to 11, no experience is required to join our Recreational Classes.

Students will have the choice to attend classes 1 – 2 times per week in varying styles of dance including ballet and jazz. Whether your child is new to dance or continues to enjoy the physical fitness and fun of a dance class, our Recreational Classes allow 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.

A perfect weekly class or introduction to ballet, Recreational Ballet will concentrate on the development of ballet technique, creative movement, and music and artistic exploration and appreciation – 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.

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.

*Students registered in this program may be eligible to audition to perform in Alberta Ballet’s Nutcracker and other productions containing a children's cast.

A production fee is included in your registration and is non refundable. Participation in the Year End Performance is optional 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.
