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.
2022/2023 Season Details
Our season runs throughout the school year from September 12, 2022 to June 26 2023.
Throughout the season, kids will learn dance fundamentals, develop expression and coordination, gain self-confidence, and of course, have fun!
Each age group has a variety of options of dance classes to choose from. By the end of the season students will better understand the chosen dance genre(s) and may begin to recognize which ones they 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 as the curriculum is built for the full year in preparation for the end of year Examinations. 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.
- Mini Star Kids Team (4-6yrs)
- Junior Star Kids Team (7-10yrs)
- Rising Star Team (11-13yrs)
- Performance/Competition Team (7-13)
(Students will be assessed by instructors to be a part of each team)
