Studio founders, Helen Kolacevic and Kate Tomaszewski first met while studying dance at York University. After they graduated they began teaching dance classes at Annette Recreation Centre on Tuesday evenings. By the end of the following year they had over one hundred and sixty pre-school and kindergarten dance students coming to class every week. They realized that their passion for inspiring tiny dancers had created something special and Body Language Academy of Dance was born.
They moved from their small location at the corner of Bloor Street West and Windermere to a slightly less small location at the corner of Jane and Ardagh in September of 2011. Their specialty was still Early Years dance classes, but they also added a range of classes for older children and several performance teams for their students who just couldn’t get enough of performing.
In September 2017, fourteen years after they first started teaching at Annette Recreation Centre, they expanded to the current studio location at the corner of Jane and Annette. They renamed the studio and reorganized their instructors and programs to better serve dancers of all ages. Miss Helen and Miss Kate are so proud that The Pointe Dance Centre continues to be a welcoming and inspiring place where their students can laugh, learn and grow — at any age.
