Kids Dance Program Details and Policies

Star Dance Centre is committed to providing performing arts programming to cultivate the next generation of stars and to help enrich kids’ lives through dance and self-expression.

We provide professional dance education to kids in a safe and welcoming environment.                             

Our Star instructors take pride in being not only teachers but also mentors to students. They guide students in learning dance technique and artistry, but also in finding the joy of dance and learning valuable life skills. All our faculty members are actively involved in the dance community as performers, choreographers, competitors, judges and ambassadors of dance.

 

2021/2022 Season Details

Our season runs throughout the school year from September to June, and is divided into the following 3 terms:

Term 1: Sept. 22nd – Dec. 17th, 2021

Term 2: Jan. 5th – Mar 25th, 2022

Term 3: Apr. 6th – Jun 24th,  2022

Throughout the season, kids will learn dance fundamentals, develop expression and coordination, gain self-confidence, and of course, have fun! Students will explore multiple dance styles in the program, with a focus on Hip Hop, Jazz and Ballet Fundamentals. By the end of the season students will better understand each genre and may begin to recognize which ones they may wish to specialize in. 

At the end of the year students will participate in an Examination to test their skills and give them an opportunity to perform. Students will receive Certification for successfully completing one full year, which will allow them to continue to the next level in the following season.

Students will also be given the opportunity to perform their acquired skills at our annual showcases in December and June.

We recommend that students commit for the full school year as the curriculum in each term will build towards the end of the year Examination. Students may join mid-season if there is space in the program, but they will need to pass an assessment in order to be considered for Certification and Examination. The team may recommend private or semi-private classes to help the child successfully complete the season.
