Recreational Dance Classes

At The Pointe we strive to make every dancer feel welcome, motivated and successful in their dance journey whether they are a beginner or advanced.

From our uniform choices (practical and comfortable options for every body), to providing expert instruction (The Royal Academy of Dance, ADAPT, Acrobatic Arts), to our short and sweet annual recitals (on or off site depending on Covid Guidelines) — we are dedicated to providing an inclusive and inspiring experience of dance.

Students 6-18 years old may choose from ballet, hip hop jazz, contemporary, tap, acro and tumbling. Each style of dance is excellent on its own or in combination with other styles. Our schedule is designed to make it easy for dancers to take complimentary styles and to make it convenient for siblings to dance at the same time.

Below you will find more information about our programs. Feel free to give us a call with any questions! 416-763-1100

Acro and Tumbling

Acro and Tumbling classes are taught according to the Acrobatic Arts syllabus which sets the standard for acro dance worldwide. Dancers are encouraged to take their “level tests” in class throughout the year instead of participating in formal examinations all together. This allows them to go at their own pace, stay motivated and it keeps their experience stress free while maintaining safe standards of instruction.

Acro and Tumbling are separate programs that can be enjoyed together or in combination with other dance styles. Tumbling dancers must also be enrolled in Acro class at The Pointe in order to participate.

Students participate in Performance Week (in house demonstrations in November), the Annual Recital (2nd week of June) and Student Choreography Week (end of June).

Registration: 

  • $30 annual registration fee per family

  • Student dance once or twice per week depending on their age and level.
  • Uniform, photography and recital tickets are not included in the monthly fee.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is an expressive and dynamic art form. Technique draws from many sources including modern dance, ballet and jazz. Choreography often encourages innovation and improvisation by the dancers themselves. Because of this our instructors foster teamwork in order to create a safe space and nurture confidence.

Contemporary dance can be enjoyed on its own or in combination with other dance styles.

Students participate in Performance Week (in house demonstrations in November), the Annual Recital (2nd week of June) and Student Choreography Week (end of June).

Testimonials

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

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.

Tania

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

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.
