PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAM

At PDA, our Pre-School programs for dancers 18 months through 5 years create an interactive experience for young dancers. We will explore creative movement, introduction to ballet, jazz, tap, and numbers, letters, colours, and shapes as well as the fundamentals to help build strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, confidence, and body awareness in kinder-aged children. 

 

Dancers love spending this time weekly interacting with their teachers while moving to fun, kid-friendly music that encourages movement.

 

Pre-School classes are offered in Parent & Tot, Pre-Dance, Pre-School Acro, and Pre-School Flip Hop.



ACADEMY PROGRAM

OUR ACADEMY PROGRAM is for dancers 6 & over who love the physical, social, and emotional benefits that dance offers. PDA offers a variety of styles, ages, levels, days and times for our classes and they are all taught by our friendly, highly trained, and experienced staff. 

 

Academy classes are offered in Acro, Tumbling, Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, and Contemporary.



COMPETITIVE PROGRAM

Our Competitive Company is a collection of extremely talented, dedicated, and hard working young dancers. We offer a variety of programs that vary in time commitment, while all being held to the same level of expectations and training.

 

Dancers train in many different styles and compete in 4-5 competitions throughout the GTA and Guelph area. PDA Competitive Company is a team through and through, making goal setting, team building, competition mental prep, and mindset training an important part of our program. We partner with 100% You Athletics to bring this unique part of our training to life. Our program is based on building confidence and strength while instilling the traits such as work ethic, energy, focus, a positive attitude, and camaraderie.

 

All programs are by audition or teacher recommendation only. Auditions are held in June with all dancer registration required by July. A mandatory choreography week for all company dancers is held the last week of August every season .



PRIVATE LESSONS

PDA offers one on one training tailored to your dancers strengths and needs.

 

With extremely qualified staff in varying styles, we will help your dancer achieve their dance goals, improve confidence, and progress to the next level within a student-centred focus. 

 

Private lessons can be beneficial for dancers that enjoy working  directly with a teacher, want an additional challenge, or have a specific goal in mind. 

 



ADULT CLASSES

PDA offers both introductory and intermediate/advanced adult classes in a variety of styles. These 8-week sessions are great for experienced dancers 18+ that want to continue training or get back into the studio as well as for adults new to dance looking to add some movement into their weekly fitness routine 

 

Introductory classes are perfect for adults of a beginner level or those that have been out of class for a while and are looking to get back into it and gain some confidence a long the way. 

 

Intermediate/advanced classes are perfect for adult dancers who have 5+ years of more advanced training and would like to continue taking class. This class is perfect for those in a university missing their studio setting. 



LIMITLESS ABILITIES

Our Limitless Abilities Program is specifically geared toward children with Disabilities. We believe that EVERY child should have the opportunity to join a dance studio community and participate in dance classes.

 

This program is perfect for a dancer who would have more success in a smaller class with more one-on-one attention specifically geared toward their needs. Dancers with intellectual, physical, social, emotional, behavioural, or developmental challenges are encouraged to join this program.

 

The focus is on the ability and strength of the dancers and providing a fun and exciting activity for children. This program aims to reach participants who would not otherwise be able to participate in a typical dance class setting.

 

This class is wheelchair and mobility aid accessible.
