Our Break Tots class is a modified version of the youth class. Tiny dancers are introduced to an upbeat and energetic exploration of breakdance movements, dance concepts, and hip hop grooves in a safe and encouraging environment!
What to expect: Taught by Anna Nagy, students learn basic movements of breakdance, an upbeat and physically demanding dance style that originated in New York City in the early 70’s and has evolved and expanded around the world. As they develop musicality and body awareness, students explore how to combine the fundamental elements of breakdance (toprock, footwork, freezes and intro power moves) into their own freestyle dance. The skills, exercises and routines learned together are designed to inspire, challenge and help students develop confidence in self-expression.

Our new “Community Wellness Rhythm & Dance” provides over 14 weeks of culturally competent programming encouraging fitness, wellness, nutrition, motion, rhythm and disease prevention.
Students, in class, enter a kinesthetic dance mode of learning supported by indigenous and travel stories. Your mobility, flexibility and overall strength will be increased. We will develop breath control to keep your body relaxed and mind focused supported through gentle stretch, strength and yoga. Fluid, graceful movements help to tone and strengthen your back and abdominal muscles improving your posture and technique. We will dance to wonderful recorded world music, learning steps and phrases to build endurance and self confidence.

What to expect: Taught by Ciara McCormack, our instruction celebrates how ballet engages the body and mind. Dancers are invited to explore the precise yet graceful technique of ballet in a nurturing environment. We seek to guide students toward connecting ballet principles to other dance forms and to their everyday lives. Each class incorporates practice at the barre, centre and across the floor with the hope of cultivating the poise, musicality, and strength that ballet can nurture. Most importantly, students learn the fundamentals of this elegant dance form, while expressing their own artistry.
What to wear: Hair securely pulled back from face and off of neck, ballet shoes, dance clothes such as leotards, tights, leggings, dance skirts or shorts. Boys may wear sweat pants, shorts, or leggings with a t-shirt and ballet shoes.
