What Our Clients Say

This program helped with my son's confidence and communication skills. He didn't have any friends in the beginning of the school year and I'm so happy to see him talking and interacting with all the other kids in his school.
Parent (TCDSB)
Elementary Dance is not just about teaching dance steps. This is an essential part of building our school community and showcasing diversity and teamwork through our music & arts spring shows. I love seeing the transformation it has on students confidence.
School Principal (TDSB)
Mr. Dexter taught us a lot about dance and the countries and cultures they are from. At first, we didn't like partner dancing, holding hands and dance frames, but the classes were really fun. After a while we got used it and it looks and feels really good dancing with a partner. It's new, it's different, and we all love the program at the end of the 8 weeks.
