Toronto School of Ballet Inc.
The basis for developing strong technique in any dance form, Ballet provide dancers with a strong foundation in classical training, discipline, grace and technique.
Our Ballet program combines both non-syllabus and syllabus training, with the opportunity to train in the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum and the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus.
Admission to Pointe training is at the discretion of the Artistic Director. There are a variety of factors which determine a dancers readiness for pointe work and it is the goal of
the Toronto School of Ballet to ensure safe, appropriate, training.
Our Pre-Ballet and Creative Movement programs provide young dancers ages 3+ with the opportunity to explore dance and movement while developing rhythm, musicality and creativity skills.
This program provides the foundation for young dancers
to move into any style of dance as they get older.
This style allows the dancer an opportunity to develop a kinaesthetic connection
by exploring movement which allows for an expressive outlet. Contemporary often uses dance as a medium to raise awareness and communicate ideas and feelings about various social causes or concerns.
Technique developed in jazz classes may include the development of turns, jumps and leaps. Jazz dance can draw on various styles and may include elements of
contemporary, street jazz, Broadway or lyrical movements.
