Classes will explore tap and jazz fundamentals through the use of fun music, imagination, creative movement and playful learning in this electric combination class! Children will develop coordination and musical interpretation while learning to listen to their teacher, co-operate with others and work independently. Levels will be based on age and will be divided appropriately. Be ready for your child to bring out their inner diva or dude!

My granddaughter has developed many friendships through her participation at the studio and she has had the opportunity to interact with younger students as an assistant in their classes. I truly believe that Michelle and her staff provide that perfect balance of encouraging without demanding, setting expectations through caring, and demonstrating respect through modelling all while providing a strong desire for the love of dance. I have seen evidence of all of this by the continuing increased level of confidence, growth, compassion and the love of dance within my own granddaughter! Thank you Emotion Dance Company!
