East Toronto families are lucky to have so many options when choosing extracurricular activities. As parents, we understand how difficult it can be to make the right choice. The primary concern at our studio is the growth of your children, not only in dance but in life. It is an incredible process to watch your child come out of their shell, to see their confidence bloom and the effect that this has on their interaction with the world.
Class sizes are kept small so that each child receives a high level of individual attention. We emphasize positive body image and encourage attaining personal bests. Our instructors have been carefully selected for not only their professional training and industry experience, but also for their temperament, patience and ability to inspire children and adults alike. Every staff member at our studio is truly a great role model for their students.
From The National Ballet School of Canada, the prestigious Ryerson University Dance Program, the Royal Danish Ballet, Petrouchka School of Ballet, and the renowned Deborah Colker Centre of Movement to name only a few, our educators are of the highest caliber. With their help, we customize our curriculum to be above and beyond the traditional RAD standard.
Our school offers a boutique-style setting, with studio viewing windows, professionally sprung dance floors, and a comfortable waiting area. Our convenient location offers ample parking nearby and is in close proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, and a library. And there is a TTC stop right outside our front doors.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, our common areas have restricted access to parents. We are now offering private, online, live-streams of every class, allowing parents to remain connected to their child’s dance training.
As we head into our 8th season, we invite you to join our dance school community to see why Leslieville School of Dance should be your first choice of neighbourhood dance schools.
