System of Training
A good foundation in dance begins with ballet, which enables the proper placement and alignment needed to build strong versatile dancers. At all levels of study, students are encouraged to study ballet in conjunction with their jazz, lyrical, tap, contemporary, and stage classes. Students at competitive, intensive or company level prepare for Cecchetti ballet examinations and CDTA (Canadian Dance Teacher's Association) tap, jazz and acro examinations. The purpose of these examinations is to give students specific goals and to maintain development consistent with international standards.
