Recreational Dance Programs
DanzArts Toronto offers fun and exciting classes in a variety of disciplines for dancers ages 3 and up! The recreational program is designed to develop technical skills and foster artistic expression. Students may choose to enroll in one or several classes of any style.
Placement is based on skill level and age as of September 30, 2017. It is with careful consideration that each child is placed in the class that best serves the student and allows them to flourish. Dancers are continuously assessed to ensure they are in the level most appropriate for them.
The year-end recital provides our young dancers an opportunity to perform for their family and friends and showcase their acquired talents. Classes promote fitness, fun and teamwork.
