First Steps to Future Stars

At The Pointe Dance Centre the early years are our specialty. (Click here to read our story.) From day one, Miss Helen and Miss Kate have been super passionate about making every child’s first experience of dance magical and memorable!

From our uniform choices (as comfortable and adorable as possible!) to hiring only the best instructors (they gotta have that sparkle) to providing the highest quality programming (Kindermusik, Discover Dance, Acrobatic Arts, Dancerly) to separate early years recitals (because anything longer than 20 minutes is not okay) — we’re just as excited as you are about your child’s dance journey.

Below you’ll find a ton of information about our classes. Feel free to give us a call to discuss your child’s options anytime: 416-763-1100

You are invited into the classroom every few weeks for mini performances so you can see your little one making progress throughout the year. In June your child participates in a recital for family and friends. Our early years recitals take place on site in our very own performing space. The familiar surroundings help your child feel confident. This also keeps the costs down and the pressure to perform low so your first recital experience is fun and stress free.

Your Child

Your school age child is imaginative, playful and eager to learn. You will be amazed at how quickly their skills and confidence grow with the right approach!

Our Promise

Our nurturing and creative instructors keep your child captivated and entertained as they begin to learn terminology and choreography and explore dance concepts in greater depth. Social and emotional learning goals also become more complex as your child learns to cooperate, share and develop friendships.

Students may choose one style of dance or take multiple classes per week to learn different styles. All of our First Steps level classes are fantastic on their own or in combination with each other.

Testimonials

The Pointe Dance Centre is a true gem. Amazing teachers, talented and passionate. My daughter has been dancing here since kindergarten, now in the competitive teams still loves this place as much as she did they day she started.

Kristina

We LOVE The Pointe Dance Center. Miss Helen and Miss Kate are amazing. Their calm, patient and supportive nature is the reason our daughter loves going there so much.

They run very well organized and fun camps and PA day activities. The new Dance Club is perfect. They’ve hit the mark with this one. School pick up and dance class all in one.

The performances the kids put on are incredible. I’m amazed at how much they can teach in just a week (for the camps). Our daughter had become quite the performer since starting their programs.

Lyndsay

A wonderful neighbourhood dance studio. The teachers are fantastic and my daughter loves to come every week. Her confidence, passion for dance and friendships have flourished over her years at the Pointe.

Emma

When my daughter started dance lessons at The Pointe she was 3, incredibly shy and apprehensive about leaving me for dance.  Miss Kate and Miss Helen are so patient and warm, within months my daughter had found her tribe and come completely out of her shell.

My daughter really enjoyed Princess Camp over March break and during the summer.  The little performances at the end of the week are beyond cute and the children really love having parents and caregivers see them perform!

When you walk in the door at The Pointe you’re met with a genuine smile and instructors who are passionate about sharing the love of dance – such a gem!

Marissa

Sarah started dancing at The Pointe Dance Centre 10 years ago. We chose the studio because we were looking for a nurturing and positive dance experience.

The Pointe Dance Centre is a studio that teaches a love of dance and movement, and builds confidence through inclusive and creative performances.

Sarah likes that the teachers are fun and  that they care, and that they don’t make it competitive. All of the teachers love dancing and sharing their passion for dance with their students.

The students support one another and treat each other with consideration and respect.

From dance Sarah has learned to appreciate what she can do. She loves music and to move, and is willing to try new things. We have seen how her confidence from dance and performing has carried over to other aspects of her life, where she is comfortable speaking her mind and making healthy decisions.
