Recreational Dance Classes
Divided over 2 Terms: Fall (Sept-Dec ) AND Winter/Spring (Feb-May)
We also offer Summer Drop in Classes
Our recreational dance classes give children an opportunity to be creative, active and have FUN!
iDance offers a recreational dance program for children aged 3 -16. The following disciplines are offered at the recreational level:
- Hip Hop, including an All Boys Hip Hop class
- Adult Tap
- Kinder Dance (combo of ballet / jazz / lyrical)
- Combo Jazz Hip Hop
- Combo Acro Jazz
Each class runs once a week and is taught by qualified instructors. In class, students focus on learning technique through centre exercises, combinations and across the floor,. After developing an understanding of proper dance technique & steps, students work on a routine which they perform in the showcase (December for Fall Term) or recital (May for Winter/Spring Term).
iDance is committed to keeping class sizes small to ensure that all students receive individualized attention to achieve their goals. Classes of younger ages (9 and under) typically have 1-2 additional supporting teachers to the Lead teacher who are trained as Teacher's Assistants.
Recreational Class sizes have been reduced to 8-10 students (depending on studio space).
Our Fall Term (Sept - December, 14 weeks total), all Recreational classes will be required to buy a Showcase costume ($65 + HST on Nov 7th) and a Showcase Family fee of $20 on December 6th which covers the Showcase recording. Dancers will perform on Wednesday December 21 OR Thursday December 22 at Richmond Hill Centre for Performing Arts. Tickets will also be sold for family and friends to watch.
Our Winter/Spring Term will start up on January 9th, 2023, run for 17 weeks, and end with a Spring Recital. Dancers will be required to purchase a costume ($65+ HST on March 6th) which they will wear in the recital.
iDance has a great reputation for having the highest quality and most appropriate costumes/outfits for all dancers.
