YOUTH PROGRAM

We offer a number of semester based dance classes for kids and youths to help them become engaged with ballroom dance from a young age. Each class covers several styles of ballroom dance in both Latin and Standard. Those who want to pursue competition may want to take advantage of our semi-private classes.

Spring 2016

Our youth classes continue in Spring 2016. Featuring two classes that are designed for kids and youths aged 4-18, each class promotes healthy and active living. In each of the classes in this program, students will be taught choreography and basic technique for ballroom dances and introduced to the fundamentals of DanceSport.

The benefits of ballroom dancing are well documented; each class will aim to improve students’ posture, confidence, musicality, coordination, fitness, and refine motor movements. Most importantly, ballroom dancing requires a great deal of patience and working well with others!

All students in our programs will receive individual attention and our instructors will always do their best to help each person improve!

All students will have the opportunity to show off what they’ve learned at our semester end performance in front of a large audience. The spring semester will culminate in a performance at the Robson Square Summer Dance Series.

The Benefits of Ballroom Youth Programs

Fitness

Obviously, dancing gets you on your feet and off the couch. It’s a great way to get some exercise, stretch your muscles, and have a good time doing it. Dancing beats running.

Empathy

Ballroom dance is the most intense team sport. Working together with your partner is pivotal to success and a healthy dance partnership goes a long way. That means active listening and trying to understand others.

Musicality

Our instructors will teach you how to keep a beat and dance to the beat! On top of that, you’ll also learn to develop your own sense of creative expression through music and movement.

Confidence

Ballroom dance is usually danced to be enjoyed by dancers and audience alike. Performing your routines in public will improve your confidence!
