Ballet

Based on the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, our ballet program is the backbone to all of our competitive students’ dance education.

Dance City prides itself in offering solutions that allows everybody the opportunity to dance. Your child’s safety is our #1 priority, and therefore we have taken extra precautions to ensure that our dance family is safe in their studio home. We are pleased to be offering two options for class delivery starting in the fall; state-of-the-art online classes or dancing in the studio — it’s your choice, but either way your child will receive the highest quality dance instruction and won’t miss a beat!
