PRIMA DANCE ACADEMY SUPPORTS THE CULTURE STRATEGY FOR ONTARIO.

Our focus is building a strong foundation within our ballet classes, however, we do offer the following dance programs as well.

 

Jazz 

This style of dance is what is seen in many Broadway type shows. It teaches rhythm, stage presence, balance, coordination, turns, leaps and routines from simple and basic to advanced and complex and is a great complement to Ballet. Classes include warm ups, across the floor combinations and routines.  A mini theatrical experience completes each year of study.

Age group: 5 years & up

Tap

This style of dance requires a great deal of coordination and is a fun and challenging art-form. Various styles are taught including traditional, rhythm, Broadway and musicality tap.

Age group: 5 years & up

Contemporary

This form of dance is probably the most popular and has since grown to become one of the dominating performance genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world. In terms of its technique, contemporary dance tends to utilize both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet and modern dance.

Age group: 7 years & up

* The prerequisite for this class is that a dancer must be taking a minimum of two ballet classes per week to be admitted to this class.
